The opening chapters of 1 Kings are the last chapter of the story of David as much as the first of the story of Solomon (see Introduction to 2 Samuel). They resolve the question of how God's promise to raise up one of David's sons and establish his kingdom forever (2 Sam 7.12–13 ) is to be fulfilled.
