• King Solomon:
• The Temple was to house the Ark of the Covenant,
  which are what hold the Ten Commandments.
• One issue that Solomon faced was paying for the all
  the glory. The taxes needed to pay for the temple and
  beauty Jerusalem. This caused resentment which
  lead to division. After Solomon’s death, the north
  revolted and two Jewish states existed, Israel in the
  north and Judah in the south.

  enemies other times they fought each other, but they
  remained independent of one another.
• Assyria demanded tribute (essentially a bribe) to
  avoid conflict with the Jewish states. Eventually, the
  tribute was not enough and Assyria attacked. Israel
  fell first. Judah lasted for 150 years but fell to the
  Babylonians (stronger than the Assyrians). They
  captured Jerusalem and destroyed Solomon’s
  Temple. Many of the Jews were exiled to Babylon,
  hence he term.

  losses. Regained their freedom, re-built the Temple,
  re-built the walls of Jerusalem,..

  through a great flood. Sometimes as a punishment
  for the way man has conducted himself.
