SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:29 Â¶ Y dio Dios a Salomón sabiduría, y prudencia muy grande, y magnanimidad de corazón, como la arena que está a la orilla del mar.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 4:29 Verse 29. God gave Solomon wisdom, &c.] He gave him a capacious mind, and furnished him with extraordinary assistance to cultivate it.
Even as the sand that is on the sea-shore.] Lord Bacon observes on this: "As the sand on the sea-shore encloses a great body of waters, so Solomon's mind contained an ocean of knowledge." This is a happy and correct illustration.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 29. And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceeding much , etc.] In things natural, moral, divine, and spiritual, and that not slight and superficial, but exceeding deep, and large beyond expression; and this he had not from the acuteness of his genius merely, nor from his industry and diligence; but by the gift of God, as whatsoever solid wisdom and understanding is in any man, it is from the liberal hand of God, the fountain of wisdom, ( James 1:5); and largeness of heart, even as sand that [is] on the seashore ; he had a genius and capacity to receive anything; his knowledge was vast and comprehensive; it reached to and included things innumerable, as the sand of the sea; there was scarce anything under the heavens, or on the earth, and in the sea, but came within the compass of it, as what are later mentioned show.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 29-34 - Solomon's wisdom was more his glory than his wealth. He had what is here called largeness of heart, for the heart is often put for the powers of the mind. He had the gift of utterance, as well as wisdom. It is very desirable, that those who have large gifts of any kind, shoul have large hearts to use them for the good of others. What treasures of wisdom and knowledge are lost! But every sort of knowledge that is needful for salvation is to be found in the holy Scriptures. There cam persons from all parts, who were more eager after knowledge than their neighbours, to hear the wisdom of Solomon. Solomon was herein a type of Christ, in whom are hid all treasures of wisdom and knowledge; and his for us, for he is made of God to us, wisdom. Christ's fame shall sprea through all the earth, and men of all nations shall come to him, lear of him, and take upon them his easy yoke, and find rest for their souls __________________________________________________________________
