Here, Willy Wiedmann summarized a total of 4 books into one: First and Second Kings, and First and Second Chronicles. He represents the last days and the death of David. His son Solomon becomes his successor. This book also portrays the story of the two mothers who both claimed the same child was their own. Solomon decided that the child should be cut in two with the sword. One woman, however, asked the king to allow the child to live and be awarded to the other woman. This act showed Solomon that she was the true mother. After his death, the land was divided into a northern kingdom (Israel) and a southern kingdom (Judah). Various kings followed. The second half of the book deals with the story of Saul, David, the kings who followed them, the end of the kingdom of Israel, the destruction of the temple, and the demise of the Jewish kingdom, culminating in the Babylonian exile.
