How may have King Solomon explained the perfect union of men and women?
Ancient religions believed in both Gods and Goddesses. For example, King Solomon’s Goddess of Wisdom. King Solomon’s Seal design includes two triangles to signify the perfect union of men and woman.
Bible Description of Creation of Woman in Genesis
21.And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
22And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
23And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
A Perfect Union Interpretation of the Yin and Yang in Genesis
It is commonly observed that the woman was not made from the superior part of man, that she might not be thought to be above , and have power over him; nor from any inferior part, as being below him, and to be trampled on by him; but out of his side, and from one of his ribs, that she might appear to be equal to him; and from a part near his heart, and under his arms, to show that she should be affectionately loved by him, and be always under his care and protection. (Gils Commentary)
I surmised in a novel excerpt what King Solomon may have explained to the Queen of Sheba in a conversation of yin and yang interpretations. The novel is a contemporary application of a story form to promote understanding of proverbs and ancient wise sayings in relation to our modern times.
“Why are you smiling Solomon? Are my questions amusing you?” Bilqis asked in a somewhat belligerent tone.
“No Bilqis, your question brought back a pleasant thought of a discussion I once had with a wise man about the creation of women. His belief was that when Adam slept, Yahweh also took a portion of Adam’s stony heart along with his rib to make Eve. He then perfected her heart by inserting mercy and benignity. That that is how the conjunction of male and female, although distinct and separate of masculine and feminine, became the perfect union of Yahweh’s creation.”
Would King Solomon concur with the above interpretations of Genesis to be wise or foolish?
