comment Why does the Septuagint contain non-Tanakh books?
If I understand you correctly, you are disputing that "the Septuagint was a Jewish publication", or perhaps even that it was a distinct 'publication' at all? If so, please edit your answer to make that clear (including the relevant parts of your comments here), thanks!

comment When does it all start to go wrong for Solomon?
@Monica I'm ignoring the chapter boundaries completely for the purposes of this question—just using them to communicate which passages I'm referring to, not implying they have any bearing on the answer!

comment When does it all start to go wrong for Solomon?
@Monica set against that is the narrative flow, which really does seem to pivot at the chapter boundary I think.

I haven't yet taken the time to read either answer here, though I do plan to, but at a glance Frank's looks far easier to digest. That doesn't mean it is better, but he will likely get more eyeballs just because of better formatting: you've put such a lot of effort into your answers here which I appreciate, do you have some time to add headings and formatting to help us through them?
