1 Kings 4

This chapter is shorter than the English versions. The next is longer. The word nourish occurs here, it might seem odd. But hold horses till we see its use also in the next chapter. There could be some tension yet in my resolution of the glosses for this stem, כול. It seems to have force as in Malachi - who will abide? And it seems to have care in the sense of feeding and caring for a ruler, even the ultimate ruler.
