Ecclesiastes 2:9; 1 Kings 3:12–13; 1 Kings 4:30; 1 Kings 10:7; 1 Kings 10:23

So I became great and lsurpassed all who were before me in Jerusalem. Also my lwisdom remained with me.


12 behold, rI now do according to your word. Behold, sI give you a wise and discerning mind, so that none like you has been before you and none like you shall arise after you. 13 tI give you also what you have not asked, uboth riches and honor, so that no other king shall compare with you, all your days.


30 so that Solomon's wisdom surpassed the wisdom of all ethe people of the east fand all the wisdom of Egypt.


but I did not believe the reports until I came and my own eyes had seen it. And behold, the half was not told me. Your wisdom and prosperity surpass the report that I heard.


23 pThus King Solomon excelled all the kings of the earth in riches and in wisdom.
