Tag Archive: 1 Kings 11

“In one of the most beautiful poems in the Scriptures, the Teacher shows that there is purpose and balance to all things, even in this present life.  Everyday life takes on significance in the enjoyment of one’s work and the happiness of human love.  The message is aimed directly at the young people for whom much of the wisdom literature is intended.  In conclusion the Teacher urges that all things find their fulfillment in acknowledging the Creator’s purpose for mankind and in obeying his will.”

End of Solomon’s Reign

“With that parting advice to those who would follow him in these days ‘under the sun,’ Solomon himself falls prey to the ‘same destiny [which] overtakes all.’  The end of Solomon’s life is given only brief mention.”

Solomon’s Glory Fades

“An inspired writer of a later time will issue the warning, ‘If you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall!’  It is an appropriate warning for both men and nations and surprising that the wisest man of the age could so easily ignore the warning.  Yet how often do men fall at the height of success, and the greater the height, the greater the fall!  Solomon enters into forbidden marriages with women of foreign extract and is soon influenced to worship their foreign gods.  Solomon’s fall stands as a powerful reminder of how easy it is to turn from adoration to idolatry.”
