Chapter One

First Kings

The city of Jerusalem

I WAS ONCE A MIGHTY WARRIOR. THE PHILISTINES TREMBLED AT MY NAME.

GOD USED ME TO KILL GOLIATH WITH ONE STONE, BUT NOW ...

... IT IS TIME TO DIE.

IF FATHER DAVID DIES ... HEE, HEE, HEE ...

"HIS OLDEST SON, AMNON, WAS KILLED BY ABSALOM."

HIS SECOND OLDEST, KILEAB, DIED FROM AN ILLNESS.

"HIS THIRD OLDEST, ABSALOM, WAS SLAIN WHEN HE REVOLTED."

I AM ADONIJAH, HIS FOURTH OLDEST SON. I AM ALIVE AND WELL.

WHEN FATHER DIES, I SHALL BE KING!

SOLOMON'S THE ONLY PROBLEM. FATHER ALREADY SAID SOLOMON WILL BE THE NEXT KING.

THE PRIEST ZADOK, THE PROPHET NATHAN, AND WARRIORS LIKE SHIMEI ARE ALREADY ON HIS SIDE.

YOU HAVE THE PRIEST ABIATHAR AND ME, THE COMMANDER OF THE ARMY.

JOAB, LET'S INVITE ALL THE PEOPLE OF JUDAH TO A FEAST AND GET THE PUBLIC ON OUR SIDE.

THAT'S AN EXCELLENT PLAN.

I AGREE WITH JOAB.

BUT ...

... WE WON'T INVITE THOSE ON SOLOMON'S SIDE.

OF COURSE.

I AGREE.

HOORAY!

YIPPEE!

HURRAH!

ADONIJAH, HOORAY! SOLOMON, GO AWAY!

WHAT?! HOW CAN THIS BE?

YOU DIDN'T KNOW ADONIJAH HAS CLAIMED THAT HE IS KING, QUEEN BATHSHEBA?

NO,NATHAN. DAVID CLEARLY SAID THE THRONE WILL BE SOLOMON'S ...

NOW IT LOOKS LIKE SOLOMON'S LIFE MIGHT EVEN BE IN DANGER.

OH!

HURRY TO KING DAVID AND TELL HIM WHAT'S GOING ON. I WILL FOLLOW SHORTLY.

HMM ...

WHAT IS IT, BATHSHEBA?

OOOOOHHHH!

ACK!

DID I COUGH ON YOU?

OH DAVID, I HEARD ADONIJAH HAS BECOME KING INSTEAD OF SOLOMON!

ADONIJAH? AM I NOT STILL KING?

I HAVE CHOSEN SOLOMON. HOW CAN ADONIJAH BECOME KING?

KING DAVID!

LOOK HERE!

WE CAN HEAR THE PEOPLE CHEERING FOR ADONIJAH FROM HIS HOUSE.

HE HAS LEFT PRINCE SOLOMON, GENERAL BENAIAH, AND ME OUT AND INVITED THE REST OF THE OFFICIALS FOR A FEAST TO ANNOUNCE HIMSELF AS THE KING.

!

HOW DARE HE WHILE I'M STILL ALIVE!

IN THE NAME OF THE GOD WHO SAVED ME FROM ALL SUFFERING, I WILL PASS THE THRONE ON TO SOLOMON!

NATHAN, CALL ZADOK THE PRIEST AND GENERAL BENAIAH!

(Continues...)
