29 Now 1God gave Solomon wisdom and very great discernment and breadth of mind, 2like the sand that is on the seashore *.
30 Solomon's wisdom surpassed the wisdom of all 3the sons of the east and 4all the wisdom of Egypt.
31 For 5he was wiser than all men, than 6Ethan the Ezrahite, Heman, 7Calcol and Darda, the sons of Mahol; and his fame was known in all the surrounding nations.
