SEV Biblia, Chapter 11:42 Y los días que Salomón reinó en Jerusalén sobre todo Israel, fueron cuarenta años.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 11:42 Verse 42. Solomon reigned-forty years.] Josephus says fourscore years, which is sufficiently absurd. Calmet supposes him to have been eighteen years old when he came to the throne, and that he died A.M. 3029, aged fifty-eight years; and, when we consider the excess in which he lived, and the criminal passions which he must have indulged among his thousand wives, and their idolatrous and impure worship, this life was as long as could be reasonably expected.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 42. And the time that Solomon reigned in Jerusalem, over all Israel, was forty years .] The same says Eupolemus f300 , an Heathen writer, who makes him to live but fifty two years; which is the common tradition of the Jews, who suppose he was but twelve years of age when he began to reign; which is to be confuted from the age of his son Rehoboam, (see 1 Kings 14:21). Josephus f301 , on the other hand, makes him to live to too great an age, who says that he reigned eighty years, and lived to ninety four.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 41-43 - Solomon's reign was as long as his father's, but his life was not so Sin shortened his days. If the world, with all its advantages, coul satisfy the soul, and afford real joy, Solomon would have found it so But he was disappointed in all, and to warn us, has left this record of all earthly enjoyments, "Vanity and vexation of spirit." The Ne Testament declares that one greater than Solomon is come to reign ove us, and to possess the throne of his father David. May we not se something of Christ's excellency faintly represented to us in thi figure __________________________________________________________________
