Two Houses Of Israel


1 Kings. 11:1-6 But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites.
1 Kings. 11:2
Of the nations concerning which Yahweh said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their mighty ones: Solomon clave unto these in love.
And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines: and his wives turned away his heart.
For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other mighty ones: and his heart was not perfect with Yahweh his Elohim, as was the heart of David his father.
For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the elohim of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites.
And Solomon did evil in the sight of Yahweh, and went not fully after Yahweh, as did David his father.

  • Solomon was wise when he was young.
  • The beginning of wisdom is to fear Yahweh.
  • The two women and the baby.
  • Just has Yahweh said Solomon was led into idolatry.

Matt. 19:4-6 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,
And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore Elohim hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

Prov. 27:20 The grave and destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied.

1 Kings. 11:11 Wherefore Yahweh said unto Solomon, Forasmuch as this is done of thee, and thou hast not kept my covenant and my statutes, which I have commanded thee, I will surely rend the kingdom from thee, and will give it to thy servant.
Notwithstanding in thy days I will not do it for David thy father's sake: but I will rend it out of the hand of thy son.
Howbeit I will not rend away all the kingdom; but will give one tribe to thy son for David my servant's sake, and for Jerusalem's sake which I have chosen.

  • Yah promised the entire kingdom of Israel to the descendants of David forever, if they only remained obedient.
  • David reminded Solomon of this promise shortly before his death (1Ki_2:4).
  • The kingdom rested in the blessing of Yah and in the obedience and faithfulness of their king.
  • Yahweh has not changed.
  • Yahweh rose up 3 adversaries.
  • Hadad,Reason and Jeroboam.
  • David and Joab died.Hadad returned to Israel.
  • Jeroboam the servant of Solomon.

1 Kings. 11:30 And Ahijah caught the new garment that was on him, and rent it in twelve pieces:
And he said to Jeroboam, Take thee ten pieces: for thus saith Yahweh, the Elohim of Israel, Behold, I will rend the kingdom out of the hand of Solomon, and will give ten tribes to thee.
