"So give your servant a discerning heart to govern your people and to distinguish between right and wrong. For who is able to govern this great people of yours?” The Lord was pleased that Solomon had asked for this. So God said to him, “Since you have asked for this and not for long life or wealth for yourself, nor have asked for the death of your enemies but for discernment in administering justice, I will do what you have asked. I will give you a wise and discerning heart, so that there will never have been anyone like you, nor will there ever be." (I Kings 3:9-12)

Author's Postscript - A brief study note taken from The Ryrie Study BibleEver wonder about the accuracy of the scriptures ? Please read below.
(2 Timothy 3:16)
All Scripture is inspired. Lit., God breathed; i.e., the Bible came from God through the men who wrote it (see 2 Peter 1:21). God superintended these human authors so that, using their individual personalities, they composed and recorded without error God's Word to man. Christ attested to the fact that inspiration extends to the vary words (Matt 5:18); John 10:35. In the same verse, Paul quoted Deuteronomy and Luke as scripture (1 Tim. 5:18), and Peter declared Paul's epistles to be scripture ( 2 Pet. 3:16). Inspiration does not involve mechanical dictation but the accurate recordings of God's words. Inspiration does not extend beyond the original manuscripts, though the texts we posses today have been transmitted with high accuracy.
(2 Peter 1:20)
one's own interpretation. Several meanings are possible : (1) Prophecies must be interpreted in the light of other scripture; (2) prophecies are often capable of several fulfillments; (3) prophecies must be interpreted only with God's help, since they were given only as the prophets were moved by God, and not by any impulse of man.
(2 Peter 1:21)
moved. Lit., borne along. This shows the dual authorship of God's Word- the Holy Spirit guiding and guarding the men involved in the actual writing. See note on 2 Timothy 3:16.
