The King James Version Bible

1 Kings 1:45-49

  1. And Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet have anointed him king in Gihon: and they are come up from thence rejoicing, so that the city rang again. This is the noise that ye have heard.

  2. And also Solomon sitteth on the throne of the kingdom.

  3. And moreover the king's servants came to bless our lord king David, saying, God make the name of Solomon better than thy name, and make his throne greater than thy throne. And the king bowed himself upon the bed.

  4. And also thus said the king, Blessed be the LORD God of Israel, which hath given one to sit on my throne this day, mine eyes even seeing it.

  5. And all the guests that were with Adonijah were afraid, and rose up, and went every man his way.
