Alpha Omega Studies 1 Kings 2:36-46 Solomon and Shimei
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.
