Naamah (Hebrew: נַעֲמָה, romanized: Naʿămā, lit. 'pleasant; lovely') was one of the 300 wives of Solomon, who among them bore his firstborn, Rehoboam[1][2].


Solomon's Wisdom[]

Just like the story of the Queen of Sheba, she was probably one of the many queens or princesses who came to visit Solomon and his glory given by God. Solomon used his wish to vain things, as his wives inspired him to worship golden calves and idols which led him to enslave the Israelites and led astray from the true God of Israel.

She motivated her husband into worshipping Ammonite gods of her nativity and made him build her a royal palace, which was likely where Rehoboam was raised and taught. Which likely influenced his compassion in idolatry. Being the wife who bore Solomon his firstborn she was likely loved by him in all of the kingdom.
