    I posed the question because it’s a theocracy rather than a run-of-the-mill monarchy wherein a servant could be killed for bringing anything less than a supermodel.
    I don't think run of the mill monarchies of the time would meet that specification.

    You write horror movie scripts in your spare time, yes?

    What's the point of this thread? Are we seriously questioning why men prefer women they find attractive over those that they don't?
    Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
    But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
    Than a fool in the eyes of God

    That was immediately following Bathsheba’s request.
    Solomon did that because it was proof that Adonijah was indeed angling for the throne.
    Maybe David didn’t have sex with her because she was too young at the time. It seems more plausible that she had a bigger role as a concubine later.
    Neither of those is plausible given the text.
    If she was just a glorified heating pad, why would Adonijah think such an acquisition would do anything for him? He was of royal lineage. Wouldn’t he already have status and influence enough? Solomon’s act seems rash to slay a man for asking to marry an insignificant virgin servant.
    I really don't feel like re-explaining ANE society to you when you just keep coming back with "How about x? What about y?" She was associated with the prior king. That would've given him two methods of association, not one.

    Ya know, not for nothing, but when a fat person gets cold, it's the fat that's really cold. Muscle is much warmerer.

    If Jews weren't so opposed to dogs, King David could have had a Three Dog Night!

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.
