Bible: 1 Kings 2:8-9

2:8Note well, you still have to contend with Shimei son of Gera, the Benjaminite from Bahurim, 1  who tried to call down upon me a horrible judgment when I went to Mahanaim. 2  He came down and met me at the Jordan, and I solemnly promised 3  him by the Lord, ‘I will not strike you down 4  with the sword.’ 2:9 But now 5  don’t treat him as if he were innocent. You are a wise man and you know how to handle him; 6  make sure he has a bloody death.” 7
