PART 2, 1 KINGS 11 STUDY, 03.07.19

TODAY’S STUDY WILL FOCUS ON THE MIDDLE BODY OF PASSAGES, PROBING FOR MORE INDIVIDUALIZED MEANING: 

RE-READ, STUDY, & MEDITATE ONCE AGAIN ON THE FOLLOWING:

1 KINGS 11:1-8:

1 Now King Solomon loved many foreign women. Besides Pharaoh’s daughter, he married women from Moab, Ammon, Edom, Sidon, and from among the Hittites. 

2 The Lord had clearly instructed the people of Israel, “You must not marry them, because they will turn your hearts to their gods.” Yet Solomon insisted on loving them anyway. 

3 He had 700 wives of royal birth and 300 concubines. And in fact, they did turn his heart away from the Lord.

4 In Solomon’s old age, they turned his heart to worship other gods instead of being completely faithful to the Lord his God, as his father, David, had been. 

5 Solomon worshiped Ashtoreth, the goddess of the Sidonians, and Molech, the detestable god of the Ammonites. 

6 In this way, Solomon did what was evil in the Lord’s sight; he refused to follow the Lord completely, as his father, David, had done.

7 On the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, he even built a pagan shrine for Chemosh, the detestable god of Moab, and another for Molech, the detestable god of the Ammonites.

8 Solomon built such shrines for all his foreign wives to use for burning incense and sacrificing to their gods.

TOMORROW’S STUDY WILL FOCUS IN ON SOME SPIN-OFFS FROM THE LAST SET OF PASSAGES . . . ..
