Bible: 1 Kings 1:11-14

1:11 Nathan said to Bathsheba, Solomon’s mother, “Has it been reported to you 1  that Haggith’s son Adonijah has become king behind our master David’s back? 2  1:12 Now 3  let me give you some advice as to how 4  you can save your life and your son Solomon’s life. 1:13 Visit 5  King David and say to him, ‘My master, O king, did you not solemnly promise 6  your servant, “Surely your son Solomon will be king after me; he will sit on my throne? So why has Adonijah become king?’ 1:14 While 7  you are still there speaking to the king, I will arrive 8  and verify your report.” 9
