August 16: 1Ki 11 | Jer 37 | Mk 11

Reading 1 - 1Ki 11:1-3

"King Solomon, however, loved many foreign women besides Pharaoh's daughter -- Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Sidonians and Hittites. They were from nations about which the LORD had told the Israelites, 'You must not intermarry with them, because they will surely turn your hearts after their gods.' Nevertheless, Solomon held fast to them in love... and his wives led him astray" (1Ki 11:1-3).
