I Kings 11:4 ” As Solomon grew old, his wives turned his heart after other gods, and his heart was not fully devoted to the Lord his God, as the heart of David his father had been.”

King Solomon had not followed the laws of God that commanded the Israelites not to intermarry with foreigners.  Of his 700 wives and 300 concubines, numerous were foreign women who worshiped many gods.  Instead of remaining fully committed and totally obedient…Solomon acquiesced and compromised his devotion to the Lord.
