    According to the Bible, Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines. The wives are described as foreign princesses, including Pharaoh's daughter and women of Moab, Ammon, Sidon and of the Hittites. These wives are depicted as leading Solomon away from Yahweh toward idolatry.[14] The only wife mentioned by name is Naamah, who is described as the Ammonite.[15] She was the mother of Solomon's successor, Rehoboam.

      Solomon was noted for his wisdom. This picture depicts the Judgment of King Solomon. In one account, two women came before Solomon to resolve a quarrel over which was the true mother of a baby. When Solomon suggested they should divide the living child in two with a sword, one woman said she would rather give up the child rather than see it killed. Solomon then declares the woman who shows compassion to be the true mother, and gives the baby to her.
