Only the Lord give you discretion and understanding, and give you charge over Israel, so that you may keep the law of the Lord your God.
So give Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people to discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge this great people of Yours?”
Give me now wisdom and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before this people, for who can rule this great people of Yours?”
A Psalm of Solomon.
Give the king Your judgments, O God,
And Your righteousness to the king’s son.
So keep and do them, for that is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the peoples who will hear all these statutes and say, ‘Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.’
Now King Solomon loved many foreign women along with the daughter of Pharaoh: Moabite, Ammonite, Edomite, Sidonian, and Hittite women,
For the Lord gives wisdom;
From His mouth come knowledge and understanding.
The wisdom of the sensible is to understand his way,
But the foolishness of fools is deceit.
for I will give you utterance and wisdom which none of your opponents will be able to resist or refute.
But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.
By this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His commandments.
