King Solomon Son of David Quotes
King Solomon & His Kingdom
Son of King David of Israel and Bathsheba. Husband of NN. Half brother of Eliphalet. King Solomon is a name that conjures extraordinary images out of history and legend: A glittering court known throughout the world. A thousand harem princesses.
As his authority declined, his sons and ministers began fighting over who his successor would be. Fearing that he would not be appointed heir to the throne, Absalom killed his brother Amnon and raised the banner of revolt. His insurrection was crushed, but the struggle continued. E Solomon began to strike out at his opponents. Some were executed Adonijah, Joab ; others were banished from Jerusalem Abiathar. The key positions in the kingdom were handed to his loyal servants—Benaiah was made commander of the army, and Zadok was installed as high priest to the Lord and destined to become the forefather of an illustrious line of high priests. Indeed, the internal stability attained by Solomon ensured his dynasty four centuries of rule in Jerusalem.
King Solomon was the wisest man who ever lived and also one of the most foolish.
