What did Nathan do when he became aware that King David's son, Adonijah, was preparing to have himself enthroned as the next king of Israel?

  • He called all of Solomon's supporters together to fight Adonijah.
  • He spoke directly to King David.
  • He spoke to Bathsheba, who then went and spoke to the king.
  • He went to the banquet with a dagger under his cloak and killed Adonijah.


You are correct!

1 Kings 1:9-12

Adonijah then sacrificed sheep, cattle and fattened calves at the Stone of Zoheleth near En Rogel. He invited all his brothers, the king’s sons,and all the royal officials of Judah, 10 but he did not invite Nathan the prophet or Benaiah or the special guard or his brother Solomon.

11 Then Nathan asked Bathsheba, Solomon’s mother, “Have you not heard that Adonijah, the son of Haggith, has become king, and our lord David knows nothing about it? 12 Now then, let me advise you how you can save your own life and the life of your son Solomon.
