Where we narrate the last deeds of King David, of Solomon and his greatness;
From the two books of the Kings.
In fact the day has come right now,
10. that David reigns since forty years,
To put his powerful scepter down
And ‘cause the oldness he fears

And writes his will with ink of love and tears
15. That Solomon must in the throne be sit
And Ebiatàr and Ioàb instead be guilt.
