1 Kings 4:33-34 King James Version (KJV) 33 And he spake of trees, from the cedar tree that is in Lebanon even unto the hyssop that springeth out of the wall: he spake also of beasts, and of fowl, and of creeping things, and of fishes. 34 And there came of all people to hear the wisdom of Solomon, from all kings of the earth, which had heard of his wisdom. 1 Kings 4:33-34 The Voice (VOICE) 33 He reflected upon trees, from Lebanon’s cedars to the hyssop that blankets the walls. He reflected upon animals, birds, reptiles, and fish. 34 People came from every corner of the earth—sent by kings who were fascinated by Solomon’s wise reputation—to listen to Solomon’s wisdom.

These are my thoughts, please share yours. 33 Jesus would speak in parables this may have been a similar way that Solomon spoke, he had an understanding that many could never have. 34 This was something Solomon could have used to bring glory back to the Lord. Solomon’s wisdom was heard but it is never said they heard that the Lord gave it to him. We should let the word get out about what the Lord has done for us it is important that Solomon let the people know the Lord blessed him with wisdom.
