Introduction

\\INTRODUCTION TO 1 KINGS 11\\

This chapter relates the false steps Solomon took, notwithstanding all
his wisdom, in marrying strange wives, and worshipping other gods,
\\#1Ki 11:1-8\\ upon which the Lord threatens him to rend the kingdom
in his son's time, \\#1Ki 11:9-13\\ and he raised up adversaries
against him, Hadad, Rezon, and Jeroboam, \\#1Ki 11:14-26\\ of which
last an account is given, and of his being assured by Ahijah the
prophet of his having ten of the tribes of Israel given to him; which
Solomon having notice of sought to slay him, \\#1Ki 11:27-40\\ and the
chapter is concluded with an account of Solomon's death and burial,
\\#1Ki 11:41-43\\.
