John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
1 Kings 3:28

And all Israel heard of the judgment which the king had
judged
In the above case; the decision of it was divulged throughout the land, and the fame of it was spread everywhere:

and they feared the king;
reverenced him as a wise, judicious, and faithful king, and feared to do anything of a criminal nature, as perceiving that he was so sagacious and penetrating, that he would discover it quickly, and bring them to shame and punishment:

for they saw that the wisdom of God [was] in him to do judgment;
that God had put more than ordinary wisdom into him, to make a right judgment in causes that came before him, and finish them in the most just and equitable manner.
