29 1And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding beyond measure, and breadth of mind 2like the sand on the seashore,
30 so that Solomon's wisdom surpassed the wisdom of all 3the people of the east 4and all the wisdom of Egypt.
31 For he was 5wiser than all other men, wiser than Ethan the Ezrahite, and Heman, Calcol, and Darda, the sons of Mahol, and his fame was in all the surrounding nations.
