1:31 Live for ever - Though I desire thy oath may be kept, and theright of succession confirmed to my son, yet I am far from thirsting afterthy death, and would rather rejoice, if it were possible for thee to liveand enjoy the crown for ever.

1:33 My mule - As a token that the royal dignity is transferred uponSolomon, and that by my consent. Gihon - A river near Jerusalem,on the west side. Adonijah was inaugurated on the east side. Thisplace David chose, either, as remote from Adonijah and his company,that so the people might be there without fear of tumults or bloodshed; or,to shew that Solomon was chosen king in opposition to Adonijah: or,because this was a place of great resort, and fit to receive and displaythat numerous company, which he knew would follow Solomon thither.

1:34 Anoint - As they used to do where there was any thing new orextraordinary in the succession. And this unction signified both thedesignation of the persons to the office, and the gifts and graces whichwere necessary for their office, and which, they, seeking them sincerelyfrom God, might expect to receive.
