While working on this evening’s sermon, a thought came to me(which is always dangerous). It seems Solomon had 700 wives. It seems that he was about 12 years old when he ascended the throne, and he ruled 40 years. This would mean that he had a wedding about every 3-4 weeks for 40 years.
Just think, if that were today, a wedding planner could make an entire career with just Solomon for a customer!
By the way, in addition to the 700 wives(think of the skillets! ), Solomon had 300 concubines, or mistresses. He had to have been one busy dude.
