why are both david and solomon regarded so highly in the bible and in jewish culture when any rational person can tell both were complete scumbags. david murders and cuts off the foreskins of 200 men for a gift to wed saul's daughter michal. he then marries two others and goes on numerous murderous raids. solomon the alleged wise man of ancient times is a spineless weak coward who has his mother connive and manipulate the throne from the rightful heir adonijah. so why do israel use the 'star of david' or 'seal of solomon' as its flag insignia?
