Then Nathan spoke to Bathsheba the mother of Solomon, saying, "Haven't you heard that Adonijah the son of Haggith reigns, and David our lord doesn't know it?
Now therefore come, please let me give you counsel, that you may save your own life, and the life of your son Solomon.
Go in to king David, and tell him, 'Didn't you, my lord, king, swear to your handmaid, saying, Assuredly Solomon your son shall reign after me, and he shall sit on my throne? Why then does Adonijah reign?'
Behold, while you yet talk there with the king, I also will come in after you, and confirm your words."
Bathsheba went in to the king into the room. The king was very old; and Abishag the Shunammite was ministering to the king.
Bathsheba bowed, and did obeisance to the king. The king said, "What would you like?"
She said to him, "My lord, you swore by Yahweh your God to your handmaid, 'Assuredly Solomon your son shall reign after me, and he shall sit on my throne.'
Now, behold, Adonijah reigns; and you, my lord the king, don't know it.
He has slain cattle and fatlings and sheep in abundance, and has called all the sons of the king, and Abiathar the priest, and Joab the captain of the army; but he hasn't called Solomon your servant.
You, my lord the king, the eyes of all Israel are on you, that you should tell them who shall sit on the throne of my lord the king after him.
