Bible: 1 Kings 2:1-4

David’s Final Words to Solomon

2:1 When David was close to death, 1  he told 2  Solomon his son: 2:2 I am about to die. 3  Be strong and become a man! 2:3 Do the job the Lord your God has assigned you 4  by following his instructions 5  and obeying 6  his rules, commandments, regulations, and laws as written in the law of Moses. Then you will succeed in all you do and seek to accomplish, 7  2:4 and the Lord will fulfill his promise to me, 8  ‘If your descendants watch their step 9  and live faithfully in my presence 10  with all their heart and being, 11  then,’ he promised, 12  ‘you will not fail to have a successor on the throne of Israel.’ 13
