1 ملوك 2

وَلَمَّا قَرُبَتْ أَيَّامُ وَفَاةِ دَاوُدَ أَوْصَى سُلَيْمَانَ ٱبْنَهُ قَائِلًا: ١ 1
When David [knew that] he was about to die, he gave these final instructions to his son Solomon:
«أَنَا ذَاهِبٌ فِي طَرِيقِ ٱلْأَرْضِ كُلِّهَا، فَتَشَدَّدْ وَكُنْ رَجُلًا. ٢ 2
“I am about to die [EUP], like everyone else on earth does. Be courageous and conduct yourself as an adult should.
اِحْفَظْ شَعَائِرَ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكَ، إِذْ تَسِيرُ فِي طُرُقِهِ، وَتَحْفَظُ فَرَائِضَهُ، وَصَايَاهُ وَأَحْكَامَهُ وَشَهَادَاتِهِ، كَمَا هُوَ مَكْتُوبٌ فِي شَرِيعَةِ مُوسَى، لِكَيْ تُفْلِحَ فِي كُلِّ مَا تَفْعَلُ وَحَيْثُمَا تَوَجَّهْتَ. ٣ 3
Do what Yahweh our God tells you to do. Conduct yourself as he wants you to do. Obey all of his laws and commands and precepts and instructions that are written in the laws that Moses [gave us]. Do this in order that you will prosper in all that you do and wherever you go.
لِكَيْ يُقِيمَ ٱلرَّبُّ كَلَامَهُ ٱلَّذِي تَكَلَّمَ بِهِ عَنِّي قَائِلًا: إِذَا حَفِظَ بَنُوكَ طَرِيقَهُمْ وَسَلَكُوا أَمَامِي بِٱلْأَمَانَةِ مِنْ كُلِّ قُلُوبِهِمْ وَكُلِّ أَنْفُسِهِمْ، قَالَ لَا يُعْدَمُ لَكَ رَجُلٌ عَنْ كُرْسِيِّ إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٤ 4
If you continually do that, Yahweh will do what he promised me: He said, ‘If your descendants do what I tell them to do, and faithfully obey my commands with all their inner beings, they will always be [LIT] the ones who will rule [MTY] Israel.’
وَأَنْتَ أَيْضًا تَعْلَمُ مَا فَعَلَ بِي يُوآبُ ٱبْنُ صَرُويَةَ، مَا فَعَلَ لِرَئِيسَيْ جُيُوشِ إِسْرَائِيلَ: ٱبْنَيْرَ بْنِ نَيْرَ وَعَمَاسَا بْنِ يَثْرٍ، إِذْ قَتَلَهُمَا وَسَفَكَ دَمَ ٱلْحَرْبِ فِي ٱلصُّلْحِ، وَجَعَلَ دَمَ ٱلْحَرْبِ فِي مِنْطَقَتِهِ ٱلَّتِي عَلَى حَقَوَيْهِ وَفِي نَعْلَيْهِ ٱللَّتَيْنِ بِرِجْلَيْهِ. ٥ 5
There is something else [that I want you to do]. You know what Joab did to me. He killed my two army commanders, Abner and Amasa. He murdered them violently [MTY] during a time of peace, pretending that it was a time of war. Those two men (were innocent/had not done what was wrong). But Joab [killed them and ]caused their blood to stain his belt and his sandals.
فَٱفْعَلْ حَسَبَ حِكْمَتِكَ وَلَا تَدَعْ شَيْبَتَهُ تَنْحَدِرُ بِسَلَامٍ إِلَى ٱلْهَاوِيَةِ. (Sheol h7585) ٦ 6
Because you are wise, do to him what you think is best [for you to do], but do not allow him to become old [MTY] and then die [IDM] peacefully. (Sheol h7585)
وَٱفْعَلْ مَعْرُوفًا لِبَنِي بَرْزِلَّايِ ٱلْجِلْعَادِيِّ فَيَكُونُوا بَيْنَ ٱلْآكِلِينَ عَلَى مَائِدَتِكَ، لِأَنَّهُمْ هَكَذَا تَقَدَّمُوا إِلَيَّ عِنْدَ هَرَبِي مِنْ وَجْهِ أَبْشَالُومَ أَخِيكَ. ٧ 7
But be kind to the sons of Barzillai, the man from the Gilead [region], and be sure that they always have enough food to eat [MTY]. Do that because Barzillai helped me when I was running away from your older brother Absalom.
وَهُوَذَا مَعَكَ شِمْعِي بْنُ جِيرَا ٱلْبَنْيَامِينِيُّ مِنْ بَحُورِيمَ، وَهُوَ لَعَنَنِي لَعْنَةً شَدِيدَةً يَوْمَ ٱنْطَلَقْتُ إِلَى مَحَنَايِمَ، وَقَدْ نَزَلَ لِلِقَائِي إِلَى ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ، فَحَلَفْتُ لَهُ بِٱلرَّبِّ قَائِلًا: إِنِّي لَا أُمِيتُكَ بِٱلسَّيْفِ. ٨ 8
Also, [you remember] Gera's son Shimei from Bahurim [town] in the area where the descendants of Benjamin live. [You know what he did to me]. He cursed me terribly on the day I [left Jerusalem and] went to Mahanaim [town]. But when he later came down to see me at the Jordan [River], I solemnly promised, while Yahweh listened [MTY], that I would not cause him to be executed.
وَٱلْآنَ فَلَا تُبَرِّرْهُ لِأَنَّكَ أَنْتَ رَجُلٌ حَكِيمٌ، فَٱعْلَمْ مَا تَفْعَلُ بِهِ وَأَحْدِرْ شَيْبَتَهُ بِٱلدَّمِ إِلَى ٱلْهَاوِيَةِ».». (Sheol h7585) ٩ 9
But now you must [LIT] surely punish him. You are a wise man, so you will know what you should do to him. He is an old man [MTY], but be sure that he [loses/sheds] a lot of blood when you kill him [MTY].” (Sheol h7585)
وَٱضْطَجَعَ دَاوُدُ مَعَ آبَائِهِ، وَدُفِنَ فِي مَدِينَةِ دَاوُدَ. ١٠ 10
Then David died [EUP] and was buried in [that part of Jerusalem which was called] ‘The City of David’.
وَكَانَ ٱلزَّمَانُ ٱلَّذِي مَلَكَ فِيهِ دَاوُدُ عَلَى إِسْرَائِيلَ أَرْبَعِينَ سَنَةً. فِي حَبْرُونَ مَلَكَ سَبْعَ سِنِينٍ، وَفِي أُورُشَلِيمَ مَلَكَ ثَلَاثًا وَثَلَاثِينَ سَنَةً. ١١ 11
David had been the king of Israel for 40 years: He ruled for seven years in Hebron and for 33 years in Jerusalem.
وَجَلَسَ سُلَيْمَانُ عَلَى كُرْسِيِّ دَاوُدَ أَبِيهِ، وَتَثَبَّتَ مُلْكُهُ جِدًّا. ١٢ 12
Solomon became the ruler/king [MTY] to take the place of his father David and took control of all of the kingdom.
ثُمَّ جَاءَ أَدُونِيَّا ٱبْنُ حَجِّيثَ إِلَى بَثْشَبَعَ أُمِّ سُلَيْمَانَ. فَقَالَتْ: «أَلِلسَّلَامِ جِئْتَ؟» فَقَالَ: «لِلسَّلَامِ». ١٣ 13
[One day] Adonijah came to Solomon's mother Bathsheba. She said to him, “Have you come because you want things to go well?” He replied, “Yes.”
ثُمَّ قَالَ: «لِي مَعَكِ كَلِمَةٌ». فَقَالَتْ: «تَكَلَّمْ». ١٤ 14
But then he said, “I have something to ask you to do.” She said, “Tell me [what you want me to do].”
فَقَالَ: «أَنْتِ تَعْلَمِينَ أَنَّ ٱلْمُلْكَ كَانَ لِي، وَقَدْ جَعَلَ جَمِيعُ إِسْرَائِيلَ وُجُوهَهُمْ نَحْوِي لِأَمْلِكَ، فَدَارَ ٱلْمُلْكُ وَصَارَ لِأَخِي لِأَنَّهُ مِنْ قِبَلِ ٱلرَّبِّ صَارَ لَهُ. ١٥ 15
He said, “You know that all the Israeli people expected me to be their king [because I am David's oldest surviving son]. But that did not happen. Instead, my [younger] brother became king, because that is what Yahweh wanted.
وَٱلْآنَ أَسْأَلُكِ سُؤَالًا وَاحِدًا فَلَا تَرُدِّينِي فِيهِ». فَقَالَتْ لَهُ: «تَكَلَّمْ». ١٦ 16
Now I have one thing that I ask you to do. Please do not refuse to do it.” She replied, “Tell me what [you want me to do].”
فَقَالَ: «قُولِي لِسُلَيْمَانَ ٱلْمَلِكِ، لِأَنَّهُ لَا يَرُدُّكِ، أَنْ يُعْطِيَنِي أَبِيشَجَ ٱلشُّونَمِيَّةَ ٱمْرَأَةً». ١٧ 17
He said, “Please ask King Solomon to give to me Abishag, the woman from Shunem [town], to be my wife. [I am sure that] he will not refuse.”
فَقَالَتْ بَثْشَبَعُ: «حَسَنًا. أَنَا أَتَكَلَّمُ عَنْكَ إِلَى ٱلْمَلِكِ». ١٨ 18
Bathsheba replied, “Okay, I will speak to the king for you.”
فَدَخَلَتْ بَثْشَبَعُ إِلَى ٱلْمَلِكِ سُلَيْمَانَ لِتُكَلِّمَهُ عَنْ أَدُونِيَّا. فَقَامَ ٱلْمَلِكُ لِلِقَائِهَا وَسَجَدَ لَهَا وَجَلَسَ عَلَى كُرْسِيِّهِ، وَوَضَعَ كُرْسِيًّا لِأُمِّ ٱلْمَلِكِ فَجَلَسَتْ عَنْ يَمِينِهِ. ١٩ 19
So Bathsheba went to King Solomon, to tell him what Adonijah wanted. The king got up [from his throne] and went to greet her and bowed down to her. Then he sat on his throne again and asked someone to bring a chair for her. So she sat down at the king's right side.
وَقَالَتْ: «إِنَّمَا أَسْأَلُكَ سُؤَالًا وَاحِدًا صَغِيرًا. لَا تَرُدَّنِي». فَقَالَ لَهَا ٱلْمَلِكُ: «ٱسْأَلِي يَا أُمِّي، لِأَنِّي لَا أَرُدُّكِ». ٢٠ 20
Then she said, “I have one small thing which I want you to do; please do not say that you will not do it.” The king replied, “Mother, what do you want? I will not refuse you.”
فَقَالَتْ: «لِتُعْطَ أَبِيشَجُ ٱلشُّونَمِيَّةُ لِأَدُونِيَّا أَخِيكَ ٱمْرَأَةً». ٢١ 21
She said, “Allow Abishag to be given to your [older] brother Adonijah to be his wife.”
فَأَجَابَ ٱلْمَلِكُ سُلَيْمَانُ وَقَالَ لِأُمِّهِ: «وَلِمَاذَا أَنْتِ تَسْأَلِينَ أَبِيشَجَ ٱلشُّونَمِيَّةَ لِأَدُونِيَّا؟ فَٱسْأَلِي لَهُ ٱلْمُلْكَ لِأَنَّهُ أَخِي ٱلْأَكْبَرُ مِنِّي! لَهُ وَلِأَبِيَاثَارَ ٱلْكَاهِنِ وَلِيُوآبَ ٱبْنِ صَرُويَةَ». ٢٢ 22
The king replied [angrily], “What? Are you requesting me to give Abishag to Adonijah? Does [he want me] to allow him to rule the kingdom, too? Because he is my older brother, [does he think that he should be the king]? Does he think that Abiathar should be the priest [instead of Zadok], and that Joab [should be the army commander instead of Benaiah] because they supported him [when he tried to become the king]?”
وَحَلَفَ سُلَيْمَانُ ٱلْمَلِكُ بِٱلرَّبِّ قَائِلًا: «هَكَذَا يَفْعَلُ لِيَ ٱللهُ وَهَكَذَا يَزِيدُ، إِنَّهُ قَدْ تَكَلَّمَ أَدُونِيَّا بِهَذَا ٱلْكَلَامِ ضِدَّ نَفْسِهِ. ٢٣ 23
Then Solomon solemnly promised, requesting Yahweh to listen, “I wish God would strike me and kill me if I do not cause Adonijah to be executed for requesting this!
وَٱلْآنَ حَيٌّ هُوَ ٱلرَّبُّ ٱلَّذِي ثَبَّتَنِي وَأَجْلَسَنِي عَلَى كُرْسِيِّ دَاوُدَ أَبِي، وَٱلَّذِي صَنَعَ لِي بَيْتًا كَمَا تَكَلَّمَ، إِنَّهُ ٱلْيَوْمَ يُقْتَلُ أَدُونِيَّا». ٢٤ 24
Yahweh has appointed me to be the king and placed me here to rule [MTY] as my father David did. He has promised that my descendants [MTY] will be the kings of Israel. So just as surely as Yahweh lives, I solemnly promise that Adonijah will be executed today!”
فَأَرْسَلَ ٱلْمَلِكُ سُلَيْمَانُ بِيَدِ بَنَايَاهُو بْنِ يَهُويَادَاعَ، فَبَطَشَ بِهِ فَمَاتَ. ٢٥ 25
So King Solomon gave orders to Benaiah [to go and] kill Adonijah, and Benaiah did that.
وَقَالَ ٱلْمَلِكُ لِأَبِيَاثَارَ ٱلْكَاهِنِ: «ٱذْهَبْ إِلَى عَنَاثُوثَ إِلَى حُقُولِكَ، لِأَنَّكَ مُسْتَوْجِبُ ٱلْمَوْتِ، وَلَسْتُ أَقْتُلُكَ فِي هَذَا ٱلْيَوْمِ، لِأَنَّكَ حَمَلْتَ تَابُوتَ سَيِّدِي ٱلرَّبِّ أَمَامَ دَاوُدَ أَبِي، وَلِأَنَّكَ تَذَلَّلْتَ بِكُلِّ مَا تَذَلَّلَ بِهِ أَبِي». ٢٦ 26
Then Solomon said to Abiathar the priest, “Go to Anathoth [town], to your land there. You deserve to be killed, but I will not execute you now, because you were the one who [supervised the men who] carried Yahweh's Sacred Chest for David my father, and you endured all the troubles that my father endured.”
وَطَرَدَ سُلَيْمَانُ أَبِيَاثَارَ عَنْ أَنْ يَكُونَ كَاهِنًا لِلرَّبِّ، لِإِتْمَامِ كَلَامِ ٱلرَّبِّ ٱلَّذِي تَكَلَّمَ بِهِ عَلَى بَيْتِ عَالِي فِي شِيلُوهَ. ٢٧ 27
So Solomon dismissed Abiathar from being the priest of Yahweh. By doing that he caused to happen what Yahweh had said [many years previously] at Shiloh, [that some day he would get rid of] the descendants [MTY] of Eli.
فَأَتَى ٱلْخَبَرُ إِلَى يُوآبَ، لِأَنَّ يُوآبَ مَالَ وَرَاءَ أَدُونِيَّا وَلَمْ يَمِلْ وَرَاءَ أَبْشَالُومَ، فَهَرَبَ يُوآبُ إِلَى خَيْمَةِ ٱلرَّبِّ وَتَمَسَّكَ بِقُرُونِ ٱلْمَذْبَحِ. ٢٨ 28
Joab had not supported Absalom [when he tried to become the king], but he had supported Adonijah. So when Joab heard what had happened, he ran to the Sacred Tent, and he grasped the projections on the corners of the altar, [because he knew that no one would kill him there].
فَأُخْبِرَ ٱلْمَلِكُ سُلَيْمَانُ بِأَنَّ يُوآبَ قَدْ هَرَبَ إِلَى خَيْمَةِ ٱلرَّبِّ وَهَا هُوَ بِجَانِبِ ٱلْمَذْبَحِ. فَأَرْسَلَ سُلَيْمَانُ بَنَايَاهُوَ بْنَ يَهُويَادَاعَ قَائِلًا: «ٱذْهَبِ ٱبْطِشْ بِهِ». ٢٩ 29
When someone told Solomon that Joab had run to the Sacred Tent and was standing alongside the altar, Solomon told Benaiah, “Go and execute Joab.”
فَدَخَلَ بَنَايَاهُو إِلَى خَيْمَةِ ٱلرَّبِّ وَقَالَ لَهُ: «هَكَذَا يَقُولُ ٱلْمَلِكُ: ٱخْرُجْ». فَقَالَ: «كَّلَا، وَلَكِنَّنِي هُنَا أَمُوتُ». فَرَدَّ بَنَايَاهُو ٱلْجَوَابَ عَلَى ٱلْمَلِكِ قَائِلًا: «هَكَذَا تَكَلَّمَ يُوآبُ وَهَكَذَا جَاوَبَنِي». ٣٠ 30
So Benaiah went to the Sacred Tent and said to Joab, “The king commands you to come out!” But Joab replied, “No, I will die here.” So Benaiah went back to the king and reported [what he had said to Joab, and] what Joab had replied.
فَقَالَ لَهُ ٱلْمَلِكُ: «ٱفْعَلْ كَمَا تَكَلَّمَ، وَٱبْطِشْ بِهِ وَٱدْفِنْهُ، وَأَزِلْ عَنِّي وَعَنْ بَيْتِ أَبِي ٱلدَّمَ ٱلزَّكِيَّ ٱلَّذِي سَفَكَهُ يُوآبُ، ٣١ 31
The king replied to him, “Do what he has requested. Kill him and bury his body. If you do that, my descendants [MTY] and I will no longer be punished for what Joab did when he killed [MTY] two men who (were innocent/had not done anything that is wrong).
فَيَرُدُّ ٱلرَّبُّ دَمَهُ عَلَى رَأْسِهِ، لِأَنَّهُ بَطَشَ بِرَجُلَيْنِ بَرِيئَيْنِ وَخَيْرٍ مِنْهُ وَقَتَلَهُمَا بِٱلسَّيْفِ، وَأَبِي دَاوُدُ لَا يَعْلَمُ، وَهُمَا أَبْنَيْرُ بْنُ نَيْرٍ رَئِيسُ جَيْشِ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَعَمَاسَا بْنُ يَثَرٍ رَئِيسُ جَيْشِ يَهُوذَا. ٣٢ 32
But Yahweh will punish [MTY] Joab for attacking and killing Abner, the commander of the army of Israel, and Amasa, the commander of the army of Judah, two men who were more righteous and better [DOU] men than he is. My father David did not even know that Joab [was planning to murder them].
فَيَرْتَدُّ دَمُهُمَا عَلَى رَأْسِ يُوآبَ وَرَأْسِ نَسْلِهِ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ، وَيَكُونُ لِدَاوُدَ وَنَسْلِهِ وَبَيْتِهِ وَكُرْسِيِّهِ سَلَامٌ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ مِنْ عِنْدِ ٱلرَّبِّ». ٣٣ 33
Joab and his descendants will be punished [IDM] forever for his murdering Abner and Amasa. But things will forever go well for David's descendants [MTY] who rule [MTY] as King David did.”
فَصَعِدَ بَنَايَاهُو بْنُ يَهُويَادَاعَ وَبَطَشَ بِهِ وَقَتَلَهُ، فَدُفِنَ فِي بَيْتِهِ فِي ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ. ٣٤ 34
So Benaiah went into [the Sacred Tent] and killed Joab. Joab was buried on his property in the desert [part of Judah].
وَجَعَلَ ٱلْمَلِكُ بَنَايَاهُوَ بْنَ يَهُويَادَاعَ مَكَانَهُ عَلَى ٱلْجَيْشِ، وَجَعَلَ ٱلْمَلِكُ صَادُوقَ ٱلْكَاهِنَ مَكَانَ أَبِيَاثَارَ. ٣٥ 35
Then the king appointed Benaiah to be the commander of the army instead of Joab, and he appointed Zadok to be the priest instead of Abiathar.
ثُمَّ أَرْسَلَ ٱلْمَلِكُ وَدَعَا شِمْعِيَ وَقَالَ لَهُ: «اِبْنِ لِنَفْسِكَ بَيْتًا فِي أُورُشَلِيمَ، وَأَقِمْ هُنَاكَ وَلَا تَخْرُجْ مِنْ هُنَاكَ إِلَى هُنَا أَوْ هُنَالِكَ. ٣٦ 36
Then the king sent [a messenger] to summon Shimei, and the king said to him, “Build a house for yourself here in Jerusalem. Remain there and do not leave the city to go anywhere.
فَيَوْمَ تَخْرُجُ وَتَعْبُرُ وَادِيَ قَدْرُونَ، ٱعْلَمَنَّ بِأَنَّكَ مَوْتًا تَمُوتُ، وَيَكُونُ دَمُكَ عَلَى رَأْسِكَ». ٣٧ 37
Be sure that the day that you leave Jerusalem and go across the Kidron Brook, you will be executed, and it will be (your own fault/what you deserve).”
فَقَالَ شِمْعِي لِلْمَلِكِ: «حَسَنٌ ٱلْأَمْرُ. كَمَا تَكَلَّمَ سَيِّدِي ٱلْمَلِكُ كَذَلِكَ يَصْنَعُ عَبْدُكَ». فَأَقَامَ شِمْعِي فِي أُورُشَلِيمَ أَيَّامًا كَثِيرَةً. ٣٨ 38
Shimei replied, “Your Majesty, what you say is good. I will do what you have said.” So Shimei remained in Jerusalem for several years.
وَفِي نِهَايَةِ ثَلَاثِ سِنِينَ هَرَبَ عَبْدَانِ لِشِمْعِي إِلَى أَخِيشَ بْنِ مَعْكَةَ مَلِكِ جَتَّ، فَأَخْبَرُوا شِمْعِي قَائِلِينَ: «هُوَذَا عَبْدَاكَ فِي جَتَّ». ٣٩ 39
But three years later, two of Shimei's slaves ran away. They went to stay with Maacah's son Achish, the king of Gath [city]. When someone told Shimei that they were in Gath,
فَقَامَ شِمْعِي وَشَدَّ عَلَى حِمَارِهِ وَذَهَبَ إِلَى جَتَّ إِلَى أَخِيشَ لِيُفَتِّشَ عَلَى عَبْدَيْهِ، فَٱنْطَلَقَ شِمْعِي وَأَتَى بِعَبْدَيْهِ مِنْ جَتَّ. ٤٠ 40
he put a saddle on his donkey and [got on it and] went to Gath. He found his slaves staying with King Achish and brought them back home.
فَأُخْبِرَ سُلَيْمَانُ بِأَنَّ شِمْعِي قَدِ ٱنْطَلَقَ مِنْ أُورُشَلِيمَ إِلَى جَتَّ وَرَجَعَ. ٤١ 41
But someone told King Solomon that Shimei had gone from Jerusalem to Gath and had returned.
فَأَرْسَلَ ٱلْمَلِكُ وَدَعَا شِمْعِيَ وَقَالَ لَهُ: «أَمَا ٱسْتَحْلَفْتُكَ بِٱلرَّبِّ وَأَشْهَدْتُ عَلَيْكَ قَائِلًا: إِنَّكَ يَوْمَ تَخْرُجُ وَتَذْهَبُ إِلَى هُنَا وَهُنَالِكَ، ٱعْلَمَنَّ بِأَنَّكَ مَوْتًا تَمُوتُ؟ فَقُلْتَ لِي: حَسَنٌ ٱلْأَمْرُ. قَدْ سَمِعْتُ. ٤٢ 42
So the king sent [a soldier] to summon Shimei and said to him, “I told you to solemnly promise, knowing that Yahweh [MTY] was listening, that you must not leave Jerusalem. I told you [RHQ], ‘Be sure that if you ever leave Jerusalem, you will be executed.’ And you replied [RHQ] to me, ‘What you have said is good; I will do what you have said.’
فَلِمَاذَا لَمْ تَحْفَظْ يَمِينَ ٱلرَّبِّ وَٱلْوَصِيَّةَ ٱلَّتِي أَوْصَيْتُكَ بِهَا؟». ٤٣ 43
So why did you not do what you solemnly promised to Yahweh? Why did you disobey what I commanded you?”
ثُمَّ قَالَ ٱلْمَلِكُ لِشِمْعِي: «أَنْتَ عَرَفْتَ كُلَّ ٱلشَّرِّ ٱلَّذِي عَلِمَهُ قَلْبُكَ ٱلَّذِي فَعَلْتَهُ لِدَاوُدَ أَبِي، فَلِيَرُدَّ ٱلرَّبُّ شَرَّكَ عَلَى رَأْسِكَ. ٤٤ 44
The king also said to Shimei, “You know all the evil things that you did to my father David. So Yahweh will now punish you for the evil things that you did.
وَٱلْمَلِكُ سُلَيْمَانُ يُبَارَكُ، وَكُرْسِيُّ دَاوُدَ يَكُونُ ثَابِتًا أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ». ٤٥ 45
But Yahweh will bless me, and he will enable David's descendants [MTY] to rule forever.”
وَأَمَرَ ٱلْمَلِكُ بَنَايَاهُوَ بْنَ يَهُويَادَاعَ، فَخَرَجَ وَبَطَشَ بِهِ فَمَاتَ. وَتَثَبَّتَ ٱلْمُلْكُ بِيَدِ سُلَيْمَانَ. ٤٦ 46
Then the king gave an order to Benaiah, and he went and killed Shimei. So Solomon was completely in control of the kingdom.
