Misc. Comments

Danse d'Abisag
Or le Roi devint vieux et avancé en âge ; et quoiqu'on le couvrît de vêtemens il ne pouvoit pourtant se réchauffer.
Et ses serviteurs lui dirent : Qu'on cherche au Roi notre Seigneur une jeune fille vierge qui se tienne devant le Roi et qui en ait soin, et qu'elle dorme en son sein afin que le Roi notre Seigneur se réchauffe.
On chercha donc dans toutes les contrées d'Israël une fille qui fût belle ; et on trouva Abisag Sunamite qu'on amena au Roi.
Et cette jeune fille étoit fort belle et elle avoit soin du Roi et elle le servoit ; mais le Roi ne la connût point.
Rois I.
