HA Bible Study: 1 Kings 11:1-3

1 Kings 11:1-3
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.

    So King Solomon got laid a lot.

    Big fuckin’ deal. He’s a stud. If he had been female everyone would be calling him a whore and he’d probably have been stoned to death.

    Aside from that, this is a pretty strong statement in favor of close inbreeding. This is the problem the old order Mennonites and Amish are dealing with now. “Don’t fuck that pretty girl, she comes from (name different religion here) and is unclean and corrupted by Satan. Fuck your cousin instead”.

    Actually, it only takes one.

    Can you imagine what it was like when he went down to the 7-11 for a slurpee? Which one of those 1000 women would you want as your designated back seat driver?

    Trying to make sense out of this self-contradicting batch of bronze age pre-literate tribal lore will just drive you nuts. Witnesseth, the Baptists or Hasidim. On the bright side, this book has kept a large number of otherwise unemployable rebbe, televangelists and priests at work parsing the finer points of scripture.

    Whats to make sense?

    None of this has anything to do with Me.

    You would do a lot better to think more about your own morality than Solomon’s.

    @6 – I don’t know about the rebbes and the priests being unemployable; it seems like the priests should be able to work at some trade — supernumeraries at regional opera houses, maybe, and the rebbes could get jobs putting automobiles together in Tennessee. The televangelists are easy: there’s a crying need for more used car salesmen across the land.
