1 Kings 4:29-34 (NIV)
God gave Solomon wisdom and very great insight, and a breadth of understanding as measureless as the sand on the seashore. Solomon’s wisdom was greater than the wisdom of all the people of the East, and greater than all the wisdom of Egypt. He was wiser than anyone else, including Ethan the Ezrahite—wiser than Heman, Kalkol and Darda, the sons of Mahol. And his fame spread to all the surrounding nations. He spoke three thousand proverbs and his songs numbered a thousand and five. He spoke about plant life, from the cedar of Lebanon to the hyssop that grows out of walls. He also spoke about animals and birds, reptiles and fish. From all nations people came to listen to Solomon’s wisdom, sent by all the kings of the world, who had heard of his wisdom.
Solomon was great indeed. Here I can at least see 4 different subjects where he is interested in; Literature, Poetry, Botany, Zoology . Great. But what about Theology! This makes me wonder, was Solomon interested in reading the Torah? The five books of Moses were already there and there are many interesting things in there. It might be possible that he revered the Torah so much that he never thought of studying it? There were also other books like Samuel, Judges, Ruth and others. He met with the God of Israel at least two times and God gave him wisdom and wealth, but still his wives could turn his heart after other gods.
Was Solomon interested in knowing God? Was he interested in studying the scriptures at all?
