    Barnes' Notes on 1 Kings 1:35

    Over Israel and over Judah - There is no anticipation here of the subsequent division of the kingdom; the antithesis between Judah and Israel already existed in the reign of David 2 Samuel 2:9; 2 Samuel 19:11.

    Wesley's Notes on 1 Kings 1:35

    1:35 My stead - My deputy and vice - king whilst I live, and absolutely king when I die. And Judah - This is added, lest the men of Judah, who were in a special manner invited by Adonijah, ver.9, might think themselves exempted from his jurisdiction.
