KI1 2:42 And the king sent and called for Shimei, and said unto him,
Did I not make thee to swear by the LORD, and protested unto thee,
saying, Know for a certain, on the day thou goest out, and walkest
abroad any whither, that thou shalt surely die? and thou saidst unto me,
The word that I have heard is good.
KI1 2:43 Why then hast thou not kept the oath of the LORD, and the
commandment that I have charged thee with?
KI1 2:44 The king said moreover to Shimei, Thou knowest all the
wickedness which thine heart is privy to, that thou didst to David my
father: therefore the LORD shall return thy wickedness upon thine own
