King of Jerusalem, son of David from Bathsheba the wife of Uriah: he who married women from tribes against the command of God. Of them he had, including the Israelite women, altogether 700 brides and 300 concubines. When he had already passed the prime of life, his mind was turned away by his foreign women towards idolatry: for he served Ashtoreth, a god of the Sidonians, and Chamos, a god of the Ammonites. And out of his thousand women Rehoboam[2] was his only male son, and this son himself took for a wife Naamah the foreign Ammonitess -- he who was unworthy of his empire. For polygamy does not make a breed of goodly children.
Greek Original:
Σολομῶν, βασιλεὺς Ἱερουσαλήμ, υἱὸς Δαβὶδ ἐκ τῆς Οὐρίου γυναικὸς Βηρσαβέε: ὅστις γυναῖκας ἐξ ἐθνῶν ἠγάγετο παρὰ τὴν ἐντολὴν τοῦ θεοῦ. αἱ δὲ ἦσαν αὐτῷ αἱ σύμπασαι γαμεταὶ μὲν ἅμα ταῖς Ἰσραηλίτισι ψ#, παλλακαὶ δὲ τ#. ἤδη δὲ προβεβηκὼς τὴν ἡλικίαν ὑπὸ τῶν ἐθνικῶν γυναικῶν διεστρέφετο τὸν νοῦν πρὸς εἰδωλολατρίαν: ἐλάτρευσε γὰρ τῇ Ἀστάρτῃ, θεῷ Σιδωνίων, καὶ τῷ Χαμώς, θεῷ Ἀμμανιτῶν. κἀκ τῶν χιλίων αὐτῷ γυναικῶν μόνος ἄρσεν ἐγένετο Ῥοβοὰμ υἱός, καὶ αὐτὸς ἐξ ἀλλοφύλου Νααμμὰς τῆς Ἀμμανίτιδος, ἀνάξιος τῆς ἀρχῆς. οὐ γὰρ ἡ πολυγαμία τὴν εὐτεκνίαν ποιεῖ.
