       * 2Sa 19:16-23 Jer 4:2
    
    
    VERSE 9 
     - hold him.
      Do not consider him as an innocent man; for, as thou art a
      wise man, and knowest how to treat such persons, treat him as
      he deserves; only, as I have sworn to him that I would not put
      him to death, "bring not his hoar head down to the grave with
      blood."  So Solomon understood David; for, after he had
      commanded Joab to be slain, in obedience to his father, he
      sent for Shimei, and knowing he ought to be well watched, he
      confined him to Jerusalem for the rest of his life:  and so it
      appears David should be understood; for the negative particle
      {lo,} in the former clause, "hold him not guiltless," should
      be repeated in the latter clause, though not expressed;
      instances of which frequently occur in the Hebrew Scriptures.
      (See Jud 5:30.  1Sa 2:3.  Ps 1:5; 18 9:18; 1 38:1; 5 75:5.  Pr 5:16;
      12 24:12, etc.)  This is the view taken of the subject by Dr.
      Kennicott, and it seems the best and most correct mode of
      interpreting the text.
    
       * Ex 20:7; 22:28 Job 9:28

    - if Adonijah.
      We have already seen, that the whole harem of an eastern
      monarch was a part of the regal succession (See note on 2 Sa
      23 16:23); and it was treason for a subject to claim any wife or
      virgin who had once formed a part of it.  Solomon evidently
      considered the request of Adonijah in this light; and was
      convinced that he was still aiming to seize the crown, to
      which he considered this as one step.  But it is very
      doubtful, how far the plea either of policy or state necessity
      can justify Solomon in thus embruing his hands in his
      brother's blood, whatever might have been his treasonable
      intentions or conduct.
    
    - spoken.
       * Ps 64:8; 140:9 Pr 18:6,7 Ec 10:12 Lu 19:22

    VERSE 27 
     - So Solomon.
      This was for having taken part with Adonijah; but by it a
      remarkable prophecy was fulfilled.  God had told Eli, (1 Sa
      30 2:30-36) that the priesthood should depart from his house;
      Abiathar was the last of the priests of Ithamar, of which
      family was Eli the high priest.  Zadok, who succeeded, was of
      the family of Eleazar; and by this change the priesthood
      reverted to its ancient channel.

    VERSE 34 
     - Benaiah.
       * :25,31,46
    - and fell.
      It appears that he slew him at the very altar.  The altar was
      so sacred among all the people, that, in general, even the
      vilest wretch found safety, if he once reached it.  This led
      to many abuses, and the perversion of public justice; and God
      decreed (Ex 24:14) that the presumptuous murderer, who had
      taken refuge at his altar, should be dragged thence and put to
      death.
    
    - buried.
       * 2Ki 21:18 2Ch 33:20

       * Ac 1:20
    
    
    VERSE 36 
     - Shimei.
       * :8,9 2Sa 16:5-9 Pr 20:8,26
    - Build.
      No doubt Solomon suspected that Shimei's influence would be
      dangerous upon his own estate and among his numerous
      dependents in different parts of the land; and therefore he
      proposed to him, as the condition of his indemnity for former
      crimes, that he should live in Jerusalem under his eye, and by
      no means remove thence.  These terms Shimei readily agreed to,
      and solemnly swore to observe them; and for three years he
      lived unmolested and in affluence.  But growing secure, in
      contempt of Solomon's authority and of the oath of God, upon
      an unnecessary business he took a journey, which according to
      his own engagement forfeited his life.  Thus the Lord left him
      to be infatuated, that due punishment might be inflicted upon
      him; in order that every ringleader of opposition to Solomon's
      kingdom might be crushed, and others be intimidated by their
      examples.  Solomon's throne by the death of this man was
      established in peace, and became a type of the Redeemer's
      kingdom of peace and righteousness.--SCOTT.
