Was Polygamy Taught in the Scriptures?

Part 4 of an interview between Ryan Hinckley (host of the “Mormon Theories” podcast) and Mark Curtis (Hemlock Knots), exploring the scriptural accounts of polygamy and monogamy as taught by a divine source. Do the scriptures justify the claim that God commanded polygamy? When in history did he ever do that? We explore in depth the questionable interpretation found in Jacob 2:30, on whether or not there’s validity to the claim that God would command polygamy to “raise up seed.”

What do you think about this? Did God ever command anyone to practice polygamy? Who? When? Where?
