60IN60 Day 42 - Sun Dec 16

It's Day 42 and we're in 1 Kings 2.

Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verse 2 - "Be strong. . . and show yourself a man" - Nicely said.

- Verses 5-9 - Very bloody.  I wish our day was not as violent.
- Verses 23-24 - Apparently Solomon interpreted Adonijah's request as part of a power play to become king.
- Verse 28 - "horns of the altar" - As I noted yesterday, this was a place in Israel you were supposed to be able to flee to and vengeance couldn't be brought against you.
- Verse 34 - Obviously, vengeance came anyway (see note on v. 28).
- Verse 36-37 - Solomon apparently felt as long as Shimei was close by so he could keep an eye on him that he wouldn't try to stir up trouble and attempt to take over as king.
