Trivia:

2 Chronicles: Women

  1. God tells Solomon that he likes him so darned much (he likes murderers and polygamists) that he's going to make him the richest man who has ever lived. 1:11-12
  2. Solomon's Egyptian wife can't be around holy places. Is that because she is a woman or because she is an Egyptian, or both? 8:11
  3. Rehoboam loved Maachah the daughter of Absalom above all his wives and his concubines." 11:21a
  4. "He took eighteen wives, and threescore concubines." 11:21b
  5. "Rehoboam ... dealt wisely ... and desired many wives." 11:22-23
  6. "But Abijah waxed mighty, and married fourteen wives." Apparently, in the eyes of God, a man's status is determined by the number of wives that he possesses. 13:21
  7. "Jehoiada took for him two wives" -- without comment, complaint, or criticism from the bible. 24:3
