8-27-22, Although King Solomon had 700 wives and hundreds of concubines; God only gave him three children. One wicked son, Rehoboam and two daughters from Ammonite wife, Naamah who was the daughter of mother Zillah: Genesis 4:22; 1 Kings 14:21, 31; 2 Chronicles 12:13. There isn't any good said of Rehoboam; the worst crimes of the worst of the heathen in Jerusalem were committed by him. Sadly Solomon's only son was surrounded by wicked idolatry and even in his old age his father turned away from the one true God. He took foreign women who turned his heart. 1 Kings 11:6-10
We see that nothing can mend the hearts of fallen men, but the sanctifying grace of the Lord Jesus Christ. On this alone may we depend; for this let us daily pray, in behalf of ourselves and all around us. 1 Kings 14:21-31

What the Bible says about Solomon's Idolatry
God was not well pleased with Solomon as he was influenced by his many foreign wives and concubines, Solomon became enmeshed in pagan worship. Failing to heed God's warning of the "snare" which foreign wives would become (Exodus 34:11-16), he allowed his wives to turn him to false gods. I Kings 11:4 sums up the matter of his turpitude: Solomon's "heart was not loyal to the LORD his God, as was the heart of his father David." 1 Kings 11:6-10
