(1 Kings 3:7-12)Solomon, as a young man, prays for wisdom to rule God's people

(1 Kings 4:29-34) IN answer, "... God continued giving Sol�o�mon wisdom and understanding in very great measure and a broadness of heart, like the sand that is upon the seashore. And Sol�o�mon's wisdom was vaster than the wisdom of all the Orientals and than all the wisdom of Egypt.....he was wiser than any other man...And they kept coming from all the peoples to hear Sol�o�mon's wisdom, even from all the kings of the earth who had heard of his wisdom."

But it cannot be said that Solomon was the wisest man to EVER live.

Jesus , as God's perfect son, was a far wiser human, and the only one called 'the wisdom of God'.......(1 Corinthians 1: 22-31).

1 Kings 10:23 and 2 Chronicles 9:22 state that King Solomon exceeded and surpassed all the KINGS of the earth in riches and wisdom. Likewise, 1 Kings 3:12 and 2 Chronicles 1:12 refers to King Solomon being granted greater wisdom than any other KING. 1 Kings 4:29-34 states King Solomon was wiser than all the people of the "east country" and in verse 31 lists wise men he exceeded in wisdom. The Bible never states that he was the wisest man to ever live in the entire world, only that he was the wisest ruler to ever live. Certainly his sins proved he was not the wisest of all. And of course, Jesus exceeds any and all.

Why do you think Solomon was considered to be a wise ruler?

1 Kings is very specific about why Solomon was not only a wise ruler but the wisest man to ever live. When he inherited the throne from his father, David he had a dream and in this dream God told him to ask for anything that he wanted God to do for him. Solomon, with a humble heart, asked God for understanding on how to judge His (God's) people. God was moved by Solomon's heart through his answer because he didn't have a selfish request. As a result He (God) responded to Solomon by granting him his wish for wisdom. He (God) told Solomon that he would be wiser than any that lived before him and all who would live after him. (1 Kings 3:5-14)
