Solomon looked Mediterranean ruddy like David's 1 Kings Chapter 1 comment on 12/22/2020, 5:10pm...

Song of Solomon 1:5-6 King James Version (KJV)

5 I am black, but comely, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, as the tents of Kedar, as the curtains of Solomon.

6 Look not upon me, because I am black, because the sun hath looked upon me.

**** 1 Kings 11

King Solomon, however, loved many foreign women besides Pharaoh's daughter--Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Sidonians and Hittites.


They were from nations about which the LORD had told the Israelites, "You must not intermarry with them, because they will surely turn your hearts after their gods." Nevertheless, Solomon held fast to them in love.


He had seven hundred wives of royal birth and three hundred concubines, and his wives led him astray.


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.


He followed Ashtoreth the goddess of the Sidonians, and Molech: the detestable god of the Ammonites.


So Solomon did evil in the eyes of the LORD; he did not follow the LORD completely, as David his father had done.


On a hill east of Jerusalem, Solomon built a high place for Chemosh the detestable god of Moab, and for Molech the detestable god of the Ammonites.


He did the same for all his foreign wives, who burned incense and offered sacrifices to their gods.


The LORD became angry with Solomon because his heart had turned away from the LORD, the God of Israel, who had appeared to him twice.


Although he had forbidden Solomon to follow other gods, Solomon did not keep the LORD's command.

Mishael: Later, God did tear the kingdom from Solomon. YOU can google Solomon and his 300 wives and 700 concubines as easily as me.

However, only what is recorded in scripture is what we recognize to be trustworthy and true: God's Word=Jesus Christ.

We have to harmonize what is recorded in the Books of Samuel, Kings and Chronicles; to get the whole picture of what was going on.

Debbie states that king Solomon was black, yet I have seen nothing in God's that supports her claim. With that said, why would you make such a statement?
