I Kings 11:6 - "So Solomon did evil in the eyes of the Lord; he did not follow the Lord completely as David his father had done." I Kings 11:9 "The Lord became angry with Solomon because his heart had turned away from the Lord, the God of Israel who had appeared to him twice." There is know record in scripture that Solomon ever repented that I know of. It is recorded that David repented a number of times, but no record of Solomon repenting. We know that Solomon wrote: many of the Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Solomon. We don't know when in his life he wrote each, i.e. before his heart turned away from God or after. Proverbs and Song of Solomon could have been written before, but Ecclesiastes appears to have been written later in his life. In Ecclesiastes, Solomon indicates many things that appear to be important in life he had found to be really meaningless based on his experience. He also addresses the importance of: standing in Awe of God, wisdom, a remembering God in our youth. However, Solomon does not include the need for repentence in Ecclesiastes. If anyone needed to repent, Solomon did. As far as I can tell, Solomon did not repent. Did he? Could someone whose heart had turned away from the Lord have written Ecclesiastes (a book of the Bible)? What do you think?
