* I Kings 3:5
In Gibeon the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what I shall give thee.
* I Kings 3:9-13
9 Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people? 10 And the speech pleased the Lord, that Solomon had asked this thing. 11 And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast asked riches for thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies; but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment;12 Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee. 13 And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honour: so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days.
* I Kings 4:34
And there came of all people to hear the wisdom of Solomon, from all kings of the earth, which had heard of his wisdom.

King Solomon, arguably the wisest person that ever lived. King Solomon, the author of Proverbs was given the Wisdom of God in droves because when offered an opportunity for one wish to be granted of God, he requested wisdom to guide the people of God. The Lord responded saying: *“Because you asked for understanding to discern judgment…I have also given you riches and honor..." The wisdom of Solomon spread like wildfire, as such, people from all parts of globe sought his wisdom (*I Kings 4:34).
