KI1 2:26 And unto Abiathar the priest said the king, Get thee to
Anathoth, unto thine own fields; for thou art worthy of death: but I
will not at this time put thee to death, because thou barest the ark of
the LORD God before David my father, and because thou hast been
afflicted in all wherein my father was afflicted.
KI1 2:27 So Solomon thrust out Abiathar from being priest unto the
LORD; that he might fulfil the word of the LORD, which he spake
concerning the house of Eli in Shiloh.
KI1 2:28 Then tidings came to Joab: for Joab had turned after Adonijah,
though he turned not after Absalom. And Joab fled unto the tabernacle of
the LORD, and caught hold on the horns of the altar.
