Bible Musings (1 Kings)

"When David's time to die drew near, he commanded Solomon his on, saying, 'I am about to go the way of all the earth. Be strong, and show yourself a man, and keep the charge of the LORD your God, walking in his ways and keeping his statutes, his commandments, his rules, and his testimonies, as it is written in the Law of Moses, that you may prosper in all that you do and wherever you turn, that the LORD may establish his word that he spoke concerning me, saying, 'If your sons pay close attention to their way, to walk before me in faithfulness with all their heart and with all their soul, you shall not lack a man on the throne in Israel." 1 Kings 2:1-4

The book of 1 Kings (and 2 Kings) goes on to report a few kings who "did what was right in the eyes of the LORD as David his father had done" and a long line of kings who "did evil in the sight of the LORD."
