1:2 So his servants said to him, 'Let them seek for my lord the king a young virgin; and let her wait upon the king, and be his attendant; let her lie in your bosom, that my lord the king may become warm.'
Vayomeru lo avadav yevakshu l'adoni hamelech na'arah vetulah ve'amdah lifney hamelech utehi-lo sochenet veshachvah vecheykecha vecham l'adoni hamelech.

Vayevakshu na'arah yafah bechol gevul Yisra'el vayimtse'u et-Avishag haShunamit vayavi'u otah lamelech.
