Abishag cherisheth David in his extreme age. Adonijah, David's darling, usurpeth the kingdom. By the counsel of Nathan, Bath-sheba moveth the king, and Nathan secondeth her. David reneweth his oath to Bath-sheba. Solomon, by David's appointment, being anointed king by Zadok and Nathan, the people triumph. Jonathan bringing these news, Adonijah's guests flee. Adonijah, fleeing to the horns of the altar, upon his good behaviour is dismissed by Solomon.
