    His warning to her that her life as well as Solomon’s life was in danger (see v. 12) illustrates one of the problems with a monarchical system of government. Because of the competition that typically existed in the royal family itself, the new king often assassinated all his brothers and other possible heirs who might pose any threat to his rule. Solomon asked God for wisdom and discernment instead of money or fame, 1 Kings – God basically gives Solomon free reign to make one wish. Most people would wish for money or long life or fame or power. Solomon didn’t ask for any of these things. He humbly acknowledged his weakness and inability to lead such a large kingdom by himself.

      The reading for Saturday morning’s Mass brought us to a high point in the life of King Solomon. Solomon, when presented the opportunity to ask anything whatsoever from God chose not gold or glory but Wisdom. It is a portrait of a man deeply rooted in God. But later in life Solomon turned from his Continue reading "The Sad End of Solomon – A Moral Tale".   But we see that in the end, God has the final victory even in the life of King Solomon. Solomon was the last son that King David had during his life, and Solomon was a result of David's marriage with Bathsheba, the woman he took from another man, whom he had killed (2 Samuel 11 NIV). Solomon was a child of David's old age.

    By the end of his life, Solomon produced 3, proverbs and 1, songs (2 Kings ). That’s a lot of wisdom!Gary Michuta. Solomon’s renown for wisdom also left a mark on how we look at the Bible. The Bible isn’t a single book, but a collection of books in one volume.   Solomon wanted his readers to face the fact that life has its puzzles: we can’t figure out everything; we all face enigmas; our days are filled with frustrations; and life seems like a riddle. True, Solomon was pessimistic as he faced reality. He wanted to keep his readers from placing confidence in their own efforts and energies. Yet this was not his last word. Ecclesiastes does not .

Many times in the book of Ecclesiastes, Solomon used the word vanity. The word vanity means "senseless, empty, and worthless." So Solomon sums up his whole life and his accomplishments as senseless, empty, and worthless.

Another phrase Solomon uses throughout his writings is "vexation of spirit." The word vexation means "longing and striving.". If Solomon had ever abandoned his idolatry, he would not have left them standing.

So we seem Solomon His Life And Times book have in him a case of a fall which knew no recovery, an eclipse which did not pass. The Book of Ecclesiastes, if of his composition, would somewhat lighten the darkness of such an end; but his authorship of it is now all but universally given up.

Nearly all evidence for Solomon’s life and reign comes from the Bible (especially the first 11 chapters of the First Book of Kings and the first nine chapters of the Second Book of Chronicles).

According to those sources, his father was David (flourished c. bce), the poet and king who, against great odds, founded the Judaean dynasty and united all the tribes of Israel under one monarch. Solomon wrote the Song of Solomon, the book of Ecclesiastes, and much of the book of Proverbs.

His authorship of Ecclesiastes is contested by some, but Solomon is the only “son of David” to be “king over Israel” (not just Judah) “in Jerusalem” (Ecclesiastes12), and many of the descriptions of the author fit Solomon perfectly.

1st Kings As Solomon grew old, his wives turned his heart after other gods, and his heart was not fully devoted to the LORD his God, as the heart of David his father had been.

Solomon was not immune from the influence of those he chose to spend his time with. Being supremely wise and God’s anointed did not protect him from this. King Solomon was the third king of the United Monarchy and the son of David, the second king of the United Kingdom of Israel, and an ancestor of Jesus.

This biography provides detailed information about his childhood, life, achievements and timeline. Solomon, a prolific writer, poet, and scientist, is credited with writing much of the book of Proverbs, the Song of Solomon, the book of Ecclesiastes, and two psalms.

First Kings tells us he wrote 3, proverbs and 1, songs. Solomon's Childhood. Solomon was born in Jerusalem. He was the second child born to David and Bathsheba after their first child died as a baby. He was named Solomon (which means “peace”, since peace would reign in his day) by his mother, but Nathan the prophet named him Jedidiah (“Beloved of G‑d ”) at G‑d’s behest Solomon Overcomes Adonijah ’s Rebellion.

The life of Solomon is primarily described in 2 Samuel, 1 Kings and 2 Chronicles. His two names mean "peaceful" and "friend of God", both considered "predictive of the character of his reign". Chronology.

The conventional dates of Solomon's reign are derived from biblical chronology and are set from about to BCE. Solomon had a healthy, monogamous marriage, but by the end of his life, he had hundreds of wives and concubines. In the book, Song of Solomon, a love story is told.

In addition, various legends grew around the figure of Solomon in later times, which further elevated his already larger-than-life character. Yet, the story of Solomon ends as a tragedy, as his kingdom fragments into two after his death – the northern Kingdom of Israel and the southern Kingdom of Judah.

10 Life Lessons From the Life of Solomon. The Life of Solomon provides everyone with a sense of who God was and shows, firsthand, the blessings that God is capable of providing. We who know his history know the dark shadow that came over his life.

We know how its radiance faded away into the night. We shall do well to analyze the things that led to his downfall. There was no change in Jehovah. There was no change in Solomon's duty toward him.

The change that led to the disaster was in Solomon himself. This book tells the story of Solomon, his rise and fall, and expertly traces the themes of his strange tragedy in the light of the hope of the gospel.

There is a range of compelling and motivating illustrations drawn from classical and contemporary sources, as well as literary insights about how the story of Solomon fits into the Bible.

The historian notes that it was when Solomon was older that he strayed from God’s ways. God then gave a judgment concerning Solomon and his kingdom (1 Kings –13). Since Solomon had experienced judgment in his own life in this area, he determined to help others to avoid similar judgment in their lives.He used it 27 times, primarily in the first half of the book.

The same pattern is found with the word ‘vanity’ used 16 times (see chart). Solomon looks back upon his backslidden life and sees that when man pursues things ‘under the sun’ or apart from God, things are not well. Not a few people have told me that they feel depressed when.Bible History Summary of King Solomon.
