This realization by Solomon that the holy should not be compromised with unholy paganism suggests that he felt a measure of guilt about his wedding to the daughter of a pagan king, mainly for political reasons (1 Kings 3:1). He not only built a palace for this Egyptian princess (1 Kings 7:8), but also built a "high place" for the gods of each of his "strange wives" (1 Kings 11:7-10). Compromise for political (or other non-Biblical) reasons inevitably leads to spiritual compromise.
