Initial we are told that King Solomon used the descendants of the conquered tribes as his servants to build his cities and other works
1 Kings 9:22 NKJV
22 But of the children of Israel Solomon made no forced laborers, because they were men of war and his servants: his officers, his captains, commanders of his chariots, and his cavalry.
But later in the same book we learn how the servitude that Solomon had imposed on the Israelis eventually led to the division of Israeli into two kingdoms.
1 Kings 12:4 NKJV
4 “Your father made our yoke [a]heavy; now therefore, lighten the burdensome service of your father, and his heavy yoke which he put on us, and we will serve you.”
How can we reconcile the above texts?
