The Jesse Tree - King Solomon - December 10

December 10

Symbols: Scale of Justice, Temple, Crown

Solomon is honored in Scripture as the wisest monarch. Though he used a real sword to make his point, he used his wisdom, the sword of justice, to divide truth from lies.

God foretold that David's son and heir, Solomon, would be the one to build a temple to the Lord God. Solomon did in fact complete the construction of the temple during his reign.
