while thine handmaid slept, and laid it in her bosom, and laid her dead
child in my bosom.
KI1 3:21 And when I rose in the morning to give my child suck, behold,
it was dead: but when I had considered it in the morning, behold, it was
not my son, which I did bear.
KI1 3:22 And the other woman said, Nay; but the living is my son, and
the dead is thy son. And this said, No; but the dead is thy son, and the
living is my son. Thus they spake before the king.
KI1 3:23 Then said the king, The one saith, This is my son that liveth,
and thy son is the dead: and the other saith, Nay; but thy son is the
dead, and my son is the living.
