The Seeds of Division
When Shaul (Saul) gathers an army to fight the Nachash the
Ammonite, the army is numbered as 300,000 from Israel and 30,000 from
Judea. Apparently the seeds of the eventual division of the united
monarchy of Shaul, David, and Shlomo (Solomon) into the northern Kingdom of
Israel and the southern Kingdom of Judea upon the death of Shlomo 101 years
later had already been sown from its inception.
