Solomon has now solidified his reign, having dealt with the traitorous Adonijah, Joab,and Abiathar.  He now must face yet one more potential trouble spot - the man who once roundly cursed his father, then pledged to David to be an honest and quiet citizen of his kingdom.  David is dead; Shimei still lives in and amongst his Benjamite family.  David warned Solomon before his death that Shimei needed watching.  Solomon heeds his fathers advice.
