INTRODUCTION. As a young king Solomon asked God for wisdom to judge his people properly. God granted his request and gave Solomon wisdom and great understanding so that his fame was known throughout the surrounding nations. He also gave Solomon that which he did not ask–riches and honor. God did require, however, that Solomon keep the Lord's statutes and commandments as had David his father. If Solomon remained faithful, then the Lord promised to lengthen his days.

It was not long before Solomon's ability to judge wisely was tested. One day two

women came to him for judgment, each of whom had given birth to a son. During

the night one child died, and each woman then claimed that the surviving child be-

longed to her.
