    So where in the context does it support what you are saying? Where does it say in the context that if a man is capable of supporting more than one wife then it is OK for him to do so? In fact the context is saying the opposite to what you imply. The context is about the do and don'ts of the King of Israel. A king is usually rich and powerful person. So if we go by what you you say then he is capable of caring for multiple wives and so it is OK for him to have many wives. But no, rather we read the opposite to your claim. That the King despite the fact he is rich and powerful, capable of having multiple wives should not do so. That is what we get reading the scripture in context.

    The support comes through the fact that Hebrew culture is really patriarchal unlike the European Jews/Jewish people who believe the bloodline is matriarchal. Go back in this post and re-read what I wrote with regards to this (Adam and Jacob). King David, King Solomon and many of our people's kings had multiple wives and were wealthy beyond imagination. This probably comes as a shock to many who are indoctrinated in Western culture but plural marriage is not really new.
    Deut 17:17 states provisions for a right-ruling/just king of Israel with regards to wives and money; and that is, the right-ruling or just king may not take on anymore wives than he can take care of without forgetting his Elohim, YHWH. This is also true for matters about money. He must not let money distract his just ruler-ship. You stated that a king is usually a rich and power person. So does that mean that you're going to interpret that kings must not be rich from the verse "neither shall he greatly multiply to himself silver and gold"? If so, then you would be back-peddling. Besides, that makes no sense. Kings usually are rich and must be in order to pay their servants, soldiers, military/defense, castle/housing upkeep, and etc. That is why I said context is important.

    The part of your statement I have highlighted is a blatant lie. You don't need to mislead people about scripture in order to make your point. Doing so is dishonest. The following is the proper wording of the verse. Nowhere does it say if he the king can take care of many wives then it is alright for him to marry multiple wives. You are a liar.

    "He must not take many wives, or his heart will be led astray. He must not accumulate large amounts of silver and gold."

    Can the moderators stop this fellow polluting this forum with his unsubstantiated lies? He earlier alleged, our forefather's who were in involved in polygamy, had a wife in the north and in the south and not two wives living in the same area. When challenged for evidence he comes up with this crap somebody called Rebbe Simon Altaf said so. Where is his evidence to support the claim? So far this evidence is not being provided.
  7. That is not evidence. Please provide the evidence requested or retract the statement you made
