It is by me that kings reign
and rulers enact just law;
A wise king separates out the wicked
and drives the threshing wheel over them.
Better is a poor but wise youth than an old but foolish king who no longer pays attention to warnings.
A leader who lacks understanding
is very oppressive,
but one who hates dishonest profit
prolongs his life.
1 Kings 4:34
People came from everywhere, sent by every king on earth who had heard of his wisdom, to listen to Solomon’s wisdom.
1 Kings 10:23
King Solomon surpassed all the kings of the world in riches and in wisdom.
