1 Kings 4:29-30 King James Version (KJV) 29 And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceeding much, and largeness of heart, even as the sand that is on the sea shore. 30 And Solomon's wisdom excelled the wisdom of all the children of the east country, and all the wisdom of Egypt. 1 Kings 4:29-30 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB) Solomon’s Wisdom and Literary Gifts 29 God gave Solomon wisdom, very great insight, and understanding as vast as the sand on the seashore. 30 Solomon’s wisdom was greater than the wisdom of all the people of the East, greater than all the wisdom of Egypt.

These are my thoughts, please share yours. 29 Solomon’s wisdom came from the Lord and not from the world as many peoples so called wisdom has, we as Christians can gain wisdom from God as well it starts with us praying and digging into His word. 30 Egypt was known for its wisdom but this wisdom was worldly, this was the place Moses gained wisdom but the Lord caused his understand to be righteous when he stepped onto holy ground at the burning bush. True wisdom is found in the Lord.
