Poem of Creation

 
Chapter 6
Where we narrate the last deeds  of King David,  of Solomon and his greatness;
From the  two books of the Kings.
II

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
He has to choose who’ll  wear the crown
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.

...to be continued...
