surely as I vowed to you, "As the Lord the God of Israel, saying, your son Solomon shall be king after me, and he shall sit on my throne in my place; I will indeed do so this day."

Again, we find the throne of Israel in jeopardy. David, first challenged by his son Absolom who staged a coup, now facing another challenge by Adonijah, who self-appointed himself king, and then staged a coronation celebration, all without the knowledge of David. David, though hindered by age and health issues, makes swift decisive moves to circumvent his son's attempt to steal the throne. Promises to David, as far as the coming King, would not be thwarted. The Lord would have His way, not without challenge though, as we will see in coming chapters of Kings.
