Abstract

The unit dedicated to the reign of Solomon in the Books of Kings is composed of an extraordinary mixture of different materials, presenting an excellent example of a work in the making whose process of formation is still clearly apparent. The parallel material in the Septuagint of 3 Kingdoms, on the one hand, and in the Books of Chronicles, on the other, show major differences in comparison with the Books of Kings. This article touches on the intriguing question of whether 3 Kingdoms (LXX) and Chronicles preserve stages previous or parallel to the formation of the Books of Kings or are rather later redactions based on a version similar to the canonical version. More specifically, it is argued that there are no straightforward interrelations between the seemingly similar features reflected in 3 Kingdoms and Chronicles - contra A.G. Auld's simplistic approach to the history of Kings versus Chronicles.
