Study 9 From the Book of 1 Kings is: 1 Kings 10:14 – 11:43
Solomon was outwardly at the height of his power, wealth and fame (see 10:14-29). But what was going on within his heart in respect (a) of his affections, and (b) of his relation to God (see 11; 1-8)? Read Pr. 4:23-27. What was God’s chief charge against him?
How does the account of the events of 11:14-40 bring out God’s overruling hand? Cf. Dn. 4:34, 35; Ps. 135:5, 6. What effect should this truth have upon a believing heart? Cf. Acts 4:23-30.
