In I Kings 3:16-28 Shlomo Hamelech rendered the well-renowned verdict that made all of Yisrael stand in awe concerning the decision between the Two Harlots. Outside of the fact that the women were harlots and no daughter of Yisrael was suppose to be one (here, here, and here) and even if they were not Yisraelites, the land is supposed to be holy). To reach the "Supreme Court" and be granted to stand in the presence of the King, they would have had to go through various people to come before the presence of Shlomo HaMelech (here). My question is how the woman was not only a harlot but lied to various people (assuming it did not go straight to the King), what ends up happening to her after the matter? Insights, commentaries, articles, and resources are welcomed and very much so appreciated.
The fate of the woman has three potential outcomes:
She came to believe the truth of Solomon's ruling and faced the reality of her child being dead, and so she mourned the loss of her child.
Her baby was taken from her by King Solomon and given to another woman, so she came to terms with her child being given away, and so she mourned the loss of her child.
Her response of encouraging Solomon to cut the baby in half during this episode sounds like she was mentally unwell. If this was true, then perhaps she continued to unwind mentally and disappeared into obscurity. If she was perceived to be mentally unwell by Solomon and his court, it makes sense they might not heap more punishments upon her. Especially considering she had just lost her child either by death or by the court.
