The National Convention

“David moves to provide a smooth transition of government from himself to Solomon.  Realizing Solomon’s youth and inexperience, David takes great pains to organize his governmental officials and religious leaders.  At both the beginning and the end of the convention, Solomon is presented as the king-designate to follow his father on the royal throne.”
