Chapter XII.—Solomon’s Infatuation Through Women.

Hast thou not read the history of Solomon, the son of David, the man to whom God gave wisdom, and knowledge, and largeness of mind, 484 and riches, and much glory, beyond all men?  Yet this same man, through women, came to ruin, 485 and departed from the Lord.
