1 Kings 1:5; 1 Kings 1:25

Adonijah Sets Himself Up as King

Now bAdonijah the son of Haggith exalted himself, saying, I will be king. cAnd he prepared for himself chariots and horsemen, and fifty men to run before him.


25 For he has gone down this day and nhas sacrificed oxen, fattened cattle, and sheep in abundance, and has invited all the king's sons, the commanders1 of the army, and Abiathar the priest. And behold, they are eating and drinking before him, and saying, pLong live King Adonijah!
