2 Of the nations concerning which the Lord said vnto the children of Israel, Yee shall not goe in to them, neither shall they come in vnto you, for surely they will turne away your heart after their gods: Solomon claue vnto these in loue.
11 Wherefore the Lord said vnto Solomon; Forasmuch as this is done of thee, and thou hast not kept my Couenant, and my Statutes which I haue commanded thee, I wil surely rend the kingdome from thee, and will giue it to thy seruant.
18 And they arose out of Midian, and came to Paran, and they tooke men with them out of Paran, and they came to Egypt, vnto Pharaoh king of Egypt, which gaue him an house, and appointed him vitailes, and gaue him land.
29 And it came to passe at that time when Ieroboam went out of Ierusalem, that the Prophet Ahiiah the Shilonite found him in the way: and hee had clad himselfe with a new garment; and they two were alone in the field.
33 Because that they haue forsaken mee, and haue worshipped Ashtaroth the goddesse of the Zidonians, Chemosh the god of the Moabites, and Milcom the god of the children of Anunon, and haue not walked in my wayes, to doe that which is right in mine eyes, and to keepe my Statutes, and my Iudgements, as did Dauid his father.
34 Howbeit, I will not take the whole kingdome out of his hand: but I will make him Prince all the dayes of his life, for Dauid my seruants sake, whom I chose, because hee kept my Commandements and my Statutes:
38 And it shall be, if thou wilt hearken vnto all that I command thee, and wilt walke in my wayes, and doe that is right in my sight, to keepe my Statutes and my Commandements, as Dauid my seruant did; that I will be with thee, and build thee a sure house, as I built for Dauid, and will giue Israel vnto thee.

It is a sad thing when you read comments and see people blaming women for man's downfall. The downfall of Solomon had to do with disobedience. When men of God go after women, God was not as angry as when they went after the women that God specifically told them not to do. Man has a lust for things, including women that they are forbidden to go after. It happens even today. A man is married and should be to the one he made the oath with but he continues to disobey God and go after other women, prostitutes etc. Wife being a woman is not his downfall but the other women that he goes after. Once more it is man and lust for what he should not have.

The natural consequence that comes to those who depart from the way of the Lord is that they are left to their own strength. While in the heat of our success we might assume that our own strength is sufficient; those who rely upon the arm of the flesh soon discover how weak and unreliable it truly is. For example, Solomon at first, obeyed the Lord and honored His law. Because of this, he prospered and was blessed not only with wisdom but with wealth and honor. If he continued in righteousness, the Lord promised to “establish the throne of [his] kingdom upon Israel forever”. But even after heavenly visitations, even after receiving blessings above all men, Solomon turned away from the Lord. So was his brain and after all the wisdom he had, went from right to wrong.

the word Ashtoreth translated from Hebrew to Greek & again into English is our word & hoiday ''easter''. Do a history study on this foreign goddess & you'll find out why the Passover & the Resurection of our Lord got mixed up w/ bunnies & baskets.

Regardless to how close you walk with God, you still have the potential to fall from grace. We see this clearly in David's life and his son Solomon. The solution is to repent when you mess up.

@ Ralph M: I can see what your saying but i think it was Solomon's love of "strange" women. Women who were outside the of Judah and women who were not even from Israel.

The seed of David (JESUS the Christ) aflicted for our sins (Isaih 53). The Christ suffered unto death but not forever, because He rose up from the dead on the 3rd day. I will for this afflict the seed of David, but not forever. The New American Standard Version cannot be correct because it translate seed to descendants. It is not seeds but it is seed.

FOR STARTERS: NOT TO BE HARSH BUT TRUTHFUL, ONCE AGAIN, WOMEN IS THE DOWNFALL OF MANKIND. IT WAS ONCE AGAIN THE WOMEN WHO ALLURES MAN INTO TEMPTATION; AND THE WEAKNESS OF MAN TO FOLLOW. SEVERAL TIMES GOD SHOWS COMPASSION OVER DAVID; DAVID COMMITTED MURDER AND ADULTERY; YET GOD STATES DAVID FOLLOWED HIS COMMANDMENTS. DAVID WAS CHOSEN, NOT SAYING HE COULD DO NO WRONGE, BUT "CHOSEN", GOD, BEING ALL KNOWING, KNOWS, OUR SHORTCOMINGS, "HE", KNOWS OUR WEAKNESS. THEREFORE, WE MUST NOT GIVE UP HAVING FAITH IN A MERCIFUL GOD, OVER OUR SHORTCOMINGS AND CONTINUE TO STRIVE FOR THE MARK IN CHRIST JESUS. THERE IS ONLY ONE JUDGE, AND ITS NOT OURSELVES. WE MUST NOT GIVE IN TO SATAN AND SAY" I DO THIS, AND I DO THAT" GOD KNOWS ALL YOU DO. HE FORGAVE DAVID, AND HE WILL FORGIVE YOU.

Couldn't have been me!!!!! To see the glor of the Lord manifest, and keep you through many battles...just to turn your back on him?!?! it's crazy!!! They certainly were a stiff necked people, to go whoring after other false Gods, when you have the actual commandments right in the Lord's house....which you built, it is ridiculous!
