This is actually the 3rd book of Kings, continued in 2 Kings which contains the 4th book. Together they are called Melakhim in the Hebrew Bible. (The 1st and 2nd books are called 1 Samuel and 2 Samuel in Protestant bibles (like the King James).) Concludes the history of David. Includes the rise and fall of Solomon, excesses with the Queen of Sheba and the like. 1 Kings is actually hot stuff: "But king Solomon loved many strange women ... And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines." 1 Kings 11
Attributed to the Prophet Jeremias, likely written about the same time as the fall of Jerusalem (587 B.C.).
says re 1 Kings: Shmuel is not part of Melakhim. They are separate books, even in the Hebrew Bible.
