1 Kings

1.13  The drama here is perplexing.  First, it seems patronizing and, secondly, were they concerned that David wouldn't see the significance of what they were telling them.
1.49  So all the guests who were with Adonijah were afraid... You think?  This is where you here the flushing sound as their plans going down the drain.
2.5  Joab...
2.7 Barzillai...
2.8  Shimei...
2.13  Adonijah...
2.16  Abiathar...
2.27  that he might fulfill the Word of the LORD...  Another interesting example of how the Lord works in His time with people that seem to have no clue that they were accomplishing His purposes.
3.1 Solomon wasted no time messing up.
3.3  Solomon loved the LORD...  It is interesting that the record makes that statement right after giving the reason that it would change.
3.7  I do not know how to go out or come in...  I can really relate to this prayer.
3.9  to judge this great people of Yours?    I think the point here is that Solomon was asking, not so much for wisdom for its sake, but for the needed enablement to do the job God had given him, to rule Israel well.
3.11 for yourself...  This reinforces the point that it was about Solomon's desire to serve the LORD instead of his own interests (as least so far).
