Headword: *solomw=n
Adler number: sigma,773
Translated headword: Solomon
Vetting Status: high
Son of David, king of the Jews, powerful and well-known for intelligence and might, he did not cease judging the people in the intelligence and wisdom of the Almighty, and in exercizing all this wisdom full of a godly grace he created very many disciples of his instruction. In achieving these and suchlike things, and being influenced by a mind easily led away by nature toward the pleasures of the body, he married women a thousand in number, and was persuaded by them to become an idolater. Wherefore God commanded that his kingdom be divided, not in his time because of His remembrance of David his father, but after his death.[1]
"On the mighty," as Solomon says, "a severe investigation is imposed."[2] That is, he demands an account from those having completed life in excellence; and he is long-suffering towards the other men who greatly transgress the law, and he does not give a share of this pardon to the holy men. And again Solomon [says]: "for the least is pardonable by mercy; powerful men will be powerfully tested."[3]
So 'Solomon' is declined 'Solomontos', but amongst us 'Solomon' is declined 'Solomonos'.
[Note] that the old [Testament] calls Solomon 'Salomon', from the city Salem, that is peace: for in his time there was peace.[4]
