    GLUTTONY if one worked hard, and did not eat for two days and when meal arrive in front of him, and at that time the judge walked past with eyes mot ears to listen or a mouth to ask .WRATH Anger, judge flapping his gums about what he saw, man gets fired as it was lies. so no food for family Sloth eyes looking in to see man laying around as spend weeks to find job. no wife no kids. Depression.
  • Peter James Elsdon
    To much hate and sins, when we all look back on a sin, through who's eyes and how many eyes can judge. If we to really look at it simply the PRIDE: A good moral to be past down, to take pride in work and life. GREED: Well if one has worked hard for something then why not. LUST: simple it is called life and you need to be other wise not interested then extinct. ENVY Drive to be the best,

    Verse 5~It is never a good thing to exalt ourselves. We want to cultivate humility and let any praise we receive come from others.
  • Christ Magnified Glorifying Jesus
    Day 90 of Bible in a Year Reading. The history of David as King and which of his sons would be King is both fascinating and terrifying. Good intentions are not enough to stop the path of destruction that sin has starts. David's and Saul's families, as well as Israel, bore the brunt of the consequences of the leaders sins. The heirs sinned but were greatly influenced by the leaders. God Bless.
  • A disciple
    "And Solomon said, If he will shew himself a worthy man, there shall not an hair of him fall to the earth: but if wickedness shall be found in him, he shall die." We may see here in Solomon a type of Christ, when He shall come into His kingdom. The men who have conspired to exalt themselves instead of the Word of God, shall be brought to naught; and the earth will rejoice because of the KING!

    Verse 1 reminds me of how a lot of older people stay cold. I can imagine David's children and grandchildren trying to help him keep warm.
  • Ritzie
    Don't we all want to be more Christ like on a daily basis,be His servant,and our lives for Him
  • A disciple
    Delta; it was NOT an "apple" and it WAS disobedience! One thing is clear throughout the Bible, as well as in each of our own lives; is that God is fair and kind and gentle with us, with all our propensity to evil. Sin also is like a Pandora's Box, and increases to worse in the one who is captured in it. Jesus' blood cleanses us from all sin, and His work on the cross breaks its power over us. AMEN

    How do you know it was not an apple? It could have been but probably not. Apples in the USA came from England. England could have got them from the Middle East.It could have been any kind of fruit. It don't say what kind it was.
  • Irene123
    The apple - the Bible does not say it was any particular fruit. A thought came to me as I began this: the Bible says we 'eat' His word; just - what if Adam 'n Eve had some form of something to read (please don't jump all over me; I'm just 'musing' here; I am not changing any scriptures); I admit this is really a -- s-t-r-e-t-c-h. It could have been literal fruit.
  • Delta
    I wouldn't say that Adam was wicked for eating the apple. God told Adam to eat from any tree in the garden except the tree of Good and Evil. Adam was deceived by his wife Eve who convinced him to eat the apple. I believed that is how the world had to be to show the disobedience of man all because of Adam sin. Thank God Jesus came to died for our sins so that we might have life more abundantly.
  • Lol
    Why did Adam eat the apple?
  • Jophiel
    Adam only wants food in a chapter he wicked because he ate from the evil tree the sin he was naked with no skin.
  • Marlene Bennett
    God is Good to us no matter what,Don't listen to the devil ,listen to Jesus if you listen to the devil you will surely go to hell . That's bad. Going to heaven is good.
  • Iniabasi mbukpa
    God is always Good,and he wants the best for us all his children,if only we walk in the light of his word n in the mind of his spirit,he will builld us up n grant us life eternal with him n give us a Peace that passeth all understanding.
  • Tayo Adeyemo
    This passage teaches some lessons:
    1. He that exalts himself shall be abased-v.5. Adonijah exalted himself forgetting that legitimacy comes only through appointment by the appropriate authority-David.
    2. David failed as a parent in the upbringing of Adonijah. He never corrected/rebuked him over any matter at all-v.6.
    3. Decisiveness. David made sure Solomon was anointed king that same date.
  • Faith Ilori
    Lesson learnt: When it is God that enthrone you and not men the earth will rent with the sound, your voice will be heard and your authority will be felt by all men. Wait for God to enthrone you.

    Solomon rode in on a donkey from where

  • Dewey J
    Gbenga, I think not. Romans 14:5 says, Let Everyman be fully persuaded in his own mind. Nathan had a pure heart therefore Adonijah and Joab knew that so he was not invited to the illegal crowning of Adonijah. Glory be to God in the highest through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ amen!
  • Kenielhuntley
    The Lord had long ordained Solomon to be king, over Israel and Judah. The lesson learnt is: on your journey to becoming your purpose, the devil will attempt to hinder your success, by putting his own people in your way, attempting to rob you of your right as a child of God, however, you must contact the correct authority,God, and he'll clarify the situation for you.
  • TATA M. JALEIBAH-NEAL for verse 34
    Inspiring anthem that was sang to anoint Solomon King.
  • Kenibrahim2
    Surely king david did a good work to clarify lord 's power
  • Gbenga
    Probably if Adonijah had invited Prophet Nathan with Joab and co,would he have said anything to Bathsheba.What do you say?
  • Bill
    Conspiracy against GOD never works
  • John D
    1 Kings is a example of not waiting on the lord. Many christians today, who believe in the free will gospel do the same thing. They assume they are saved by the work of believing, when they need to wait on the lord, to do the work of salvation, in there lives. It didnt work for Adonijah and it wont work for anyone else.
  • Ann nduku
    Where can I read about nebucardinezzer
  • Martha
    "asante charles " you can read about Bethsheba the mother of Solomon in 2nd Samuel 13.
  • Asante charles for verse 11
    who was the solomon mother?
  • Asante charles
    what do you think of 1 king 1?
  • Adri
    This was a conspiracy for supremacy by a brother who by all norms and practice of the day being the eldest, felt that the thrown of David his father should have been his. Instead of waiting on the appointment he ran ahead of his destiny and appointed himself becoming a King without a thrown. Never run ahead of God.
