Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
29 And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding beyond measure, and largeness of mind like the sand on the seashore, 29 God gave Solomon wisdom and very great insight, and a breadth of understanding as measureless as the sand on the seashore.
30 so that Solomon's wisdom surpassed the wisdom of all the people of the east, and all the wisdom of Egypt. 30 Solomon's wisdom was greater than the wisdom of all the men of the East, and greater than all the wisdom of Egypt.
31 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. 31 He was wiser than any other man, including Ethan the Ezrahite--wiser than Heman, Calcol and Darda, the sons of Mahol. And his fame spread to all the surrounding nations.
