Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Kings 1:9-10

_ _ En-rogel — situated (Joshua 15:7-10) east of Jerusalem, in a level place, just below the junction of the valley of Hinnom with that of Jehoshaphat. It is a very deep well, measuring one hundred twenty-five feet in depth; the water is sweet, but not very cold, and it is at times quite full to overflowing. The Orientals are fond of enjoying festive repasts in the open air at places which command the advantage of shade, water, and verdure; and those fetes champetres are not cold collations, but magnificent entertainments, the animals being killed and dressed on the spot. Adonijah’s feast at En-rogel was one of this Oriental description, and it was on a large scale (2 Samuel 3:4, 2 Samuel 3:5; 2 Samuel 5:14-16; 1 Chronicles 14:1-7). At the accession of a new king there were sacrifices offered (1 Samuel 11:15). But on such an occasion it was no less customary to entertain the grandees of the kingdom and even the populace in a public manner (1 Chronicles 12:23-40). There is the strongest probability that Adonijah’s feast was purely political, to court popularity and secure a party to support his claim to the crown.
