1King David was old and advanced in years; and although they covered him with clothes, he could not get warm. 2So his servants said to him, Let a young virgin be sought for my lord the king, and let her wait on the king, and be his attendant; let her lie in your bosom, so that my lord the king may be warm. 3So they searched for a beautiful girl throughout all the territory of Israel, and found Abishag the Shunammite, and brought her to the king. 4The girl was very beautiful. She became the kings attendant and served him, but the king did not know her sexually.
