13 I also observed the following example of wisdom under the sun—it impressed me greatly:
14 There was a small town with only a few residents. A mighty king came against it, surrounded it, and waged a terrible war against it.
15 Now there lived in that town a poor but wise man who saved everyone by his wisdom. But no one remembered that poor man.
16 So I thought, Wisdom is better than might, but the wisdom of commoners is despised and their words aren't heeded.
