And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding beyond measure, and largeness of mind like the sand on the seashore,
so that Solomon's wisdom surpassed the wisdom of all the people of the east, and all the wisdom of Egypt.
For he was wiser than all other men, wiser than Ethan the Ez'rahite, and Heman, Calcol, and Darda, the sons of Mahol; and his fame was in all the nations round about.
