Solomon of Israel
As Solomon of Israel was becoming an old man, he began to turn away from God and began to worship idols. Perhaps he grew proud of his riches, power, and wisdom, and loved and thought about them so much, that he could not love and think about God. He loved the world more and more, and God less and less. At last, he abandoned God altogether. He became unhappy and discontented, even with all his possessions.
Before long the priests and prophets had to grieve over rival temples to Molech, Chemosh, Ashtaroth, and forms of ritual not only idolatrous, but cruel, dark, and impure. The evil came as the penalty of another. He gave himself to "strange women," and he found himself involved in a fascination which led to the worship of strange gods.
