English Standard Version
Chapter 12 21
Then his servants said to him, “What is this thing that you have done? You fasted and wept for the child while he was alive; but when the child died, you arose and ate food.” 22
He said, “While the child was still alive, I fasted and wept, for I said, ‘Who knows whether the LORD will be gracious to me, that the child may live?’ 23
But now he is dead. Why should I fast? Can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he will not return to me.” 24
Then David comforted his wife, Bathsheba, and went in to her and lay with her, and she bore a son, and he called his name Solomon. And the LORD loved him 25
and sent a message by Nathan the prophet. So he called his name Jedidiah, because of the LORD.
