into the northern Kingdom of Israel (Kingdom of Israel (Samaria)) and southern Kingdom of Judah, which retained the historic seat of government and focus of the Israelite religion at the Temple in Jerusalem. Omri, King of Israel, continued policies dating from the reign of Jeroboam, contrary to the laws of Moses, that were intended to reorient religious focus away from Jerusalem: encouraging the building of local temple altars for sacrifices, appointing priests from outside the family of the Levites, and allowing or encouraging temples dedicated to the Canaanite (Canaanite religion) god, Baal. Kaufman, Yehezkel. "The Biblical Age." In Schwarz, Leo W. ed. ''Great Ages and Ideas of the Jewish People.'' Modern Library: New York. 1956. p. 53–56. Raven, John H. ''The History of the Religion of Israel.'' Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Book House, 1979. p. 281–281. Omri achieved domestic security with a marriage alliance between his son Ahab and princess Jezebel (Jezebel (Bible)), a priestess of Baal and the daughter of the king of Sidon in Phoenicia. Psalm 45, sometimes viewed as a wedding song for Ahab and Jezebel, may allude to this union and its problems: "Hear, O daughter, consider, and incline your ear; forget your people and your father’s house; and the king will desire your beauty. Since he is your lord, bow to him; the people of Tyre will sue your favor with gifts." Commons:Sidon
