Who knows? Maybe Muhammad got carried away with a too literal reading of this, from the notoriously sagacious if arguably errant Solomon ...

"There are threescore queens, and fourscore concubines, and virgins without number."
(Song of Solomon 6:8)

Excuse me for saying so, but yum lol!

It’s not like Solomon was following the commands of God..
Deuteronomy‬ ‭17:14, 17‬ ‭
When you enter the land which the LORD your God gives you, and you possess it and live in it, and you say, ‘I will set a king over me like all the nations who are around me,’

He shall not multiply wives for himself, or else his heart will turn away; nor shall he greatly increase silver and gold for himself.”​
‭‭
And lo and behold that is what happened to Solomon..he had so many wife’s that they turned his heart away.

It's still a verse in our canon of scripture, and what a delicious way to be turned.

You said..
emphasis mine
Understood. I've told you all along, even though you call yourself a Christian, and I don't question that, you dont have a copyright on either Jesus or the scriptures, and they are as much mine as yours, even if I don't understand them as well, though at times I can certainly quote them. The scriptures are (thankfully) in the public domain, and I am part of that public.

I don't own them, and neither do I want to own them, they are a part of world literature, as much mine as yours, available to the world's literate. Good grief, Charley Brown, or should I say argumentative Lucy? Is this bullshit going to go on for 20 more pages?
So you enjoy scripture as literature? And that’s why you like to quote it? I’m just trying to figure out why you care about scripture while not being a Christian.

Yes, that's close. I also know how to read, quote and compare a lot of what are considered the world's sacred literatures, plural, and have a collection of some oddities, like exotic butterflys in killing jars, from around the world, not just your and your colleagues' apparently favorite, Saudi Arabia. Want to hear some more? They relate to the topic of this thread and are not all written by the sagacious, arguably wayward, certainly libidinous and ever brilliant Solomon.

Lol, what are you talking about with Saudi Arabia?

So you think the Bible is like any other sacred literature that you can just quote and expect it to be right?

Lisa, please just stop it. You're always looking to sow discord and division which is NOT a Christian trait.
Jude‬ ‭1:3‬ ‭
Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints.​

Do you suffer from an at best five-minute memory? Do you think your favorite doppleganger, Muhammad, might enjoy an occasional, select reading from the Biblical Song of Solomon? I do. Thanks, @Robin, but @Lisa has almost as many arguably relevant quotations in her quiver as Joan of Arc, and is almost as much fun.

2 Timothy 2:14
"Remind them of these things, charging them before the Lord not to strive about words to no profit, to the ruin of the hearers."

That scripture you have is not an incentive to argue about every issue the way you do in the way you do. Or, put another way:

"Never miss a good chance to shut up." -Will Rogers
