1 Kings 1-4

1 - David's son, Adonijah, sets himself up as king; David heads it off, only at Nathan's initiative, crowning Solomon instead.
2 - On his deathbed, David asks Solomon to do justice he could not: Joab and Shimei, especially. After David dies, Solomon also dispatches Adonijah, and exiles Abiathar, the priest who helped him.
3 - Solomon asks for wisdom. "Give me an understanding mind to govern your people, that I may discern between good and evil, for who is able to govern this your great people?" His wisdom is shown in dealing with the two women who each claim the living child instead of the dead one.
4 - Solomon's government, prosperity and wisdom
