The sin of sodomy, or homosexuality, was considered normal behavior in the pagan nations of Canaan which the Lord had commanded the Israelites to destroy. To God, however, it was one of the most grievous of their "abominations." Solomon had allowed it and other immoral practices to reenter the land as a result of his marrying wives from these nations. One of them, Naamah, was an Ammonitess, and she became the mother of Rehoboam (1 Kings 14:21), who eventually succeeded Solomon as king and who caused the ten tribes of Israel finally to leave the kingdom.
