    "T. Levis - in Reply on 1 Kings 2

    Hello Hanna,

    1Kings 2

    Why did Solomon have Adonijah put death?

    3rd the curse, was Adonijah trying to curse Solomon, his Father's household & Israel? Leviticus 20:9, Deuteronomy 11:27-28,..."

    What does it mean to "curse"??? Is that like putting a hex on someone or cussing them out?????

    Dgjot,

    To add 1Kings 1, then continuing into 1Kings 2, Please notice : 1Kings 1:9-12, Nathan Being a real Prophet of GOD (the one that GOD was using in that Day, 2Samuel 12, ) told Bathsheba "._._.that thou mayest save thine own life, and the life of thy son Solomon"

    The fact Solomon let Adonijah live after that was very merciful. An important fact about who Adonijah had by his side, as highest ranking Military Man, if you question was Solomon's life in danger= Joab, the one who pulled off the murder of Uriah at the cost of others lives also in that battle, 2Samuel 11, 2Samuel 2, 2Samuel 3, 2Samuel 12:27,28, that's Joab.

    What's even worse, it appears Adonijah had turned all the other Princes & family against Solomon & not one written that brought up Solomon, nor the promises of old, {That Solomon was to rule & build the Temple } 1Kings 7:51, look at 1Chronicles 22, note 2Chronicles 22:5,17, they knew & were ordered by King David to prepare & help Solomon even while he was very young. 1Chronicles 28, David had called an assembly & announced it publicly also.

    Hopefully these are also helpful

    Hello Dgjot.

    "Cursing" in 1 Kings 2 and Leviticus 20:9 has the meaning of "talking to somebody with no respect, insult him". In Deuteronomy it has the meaning of "punishment/condemnation", like we say that "Jesus became a curse for us" which means that He took our place on the cross and was punished/condemned instead of us. GBU

    Dgjot,

    I'm taking the word "cursed" directly from the Bible not other witchcraft things of this world because GOD said no undue curse shall stand. Proverbs 26:2, That stuff has no power over Believers that stay in GOD's ways.

    Malachi 2:2, Deuteronomy 28, Leviticus 18:8, Leviticus 20:11, the laws GOD had given Moses included the things forbidden that he was actually asking for Solomon to give permission. Being the king, guilt would have cursed as Deuteronomy 28:15-68, promises. Israel agreed to that, in Deuteronomy 27,

    Look also at Ezekiel 21,

    Hopefully these are helpful

    Solomon had Adonijah put death because he broke his oath to not seek the throne that was bestowed upon Solomon by King David even though Adonijah was the elder brother . 1 Kings 1:53
