“How wise wast thou in thy youth, & as a flood filled with vnderstanding.”
King James Version (KJV)
11. The Lord tooke away his sinnes, and exalted his horne for euer: he gaue him a couenant of kings, and a throne of glory in Israel. 12. After him rose vp a wise sonne, and for his sake he dwelt at large. 13. Salomon reigned in a peaceable time, and was honoured; for God made all quiet round about him, that hee might build an house in his Name, and prepare his Sanctuary for euer. 14. How wise wast thou in thy youth, & as a flood filled with vnderstanding. 15. Thy soule couered the whole earth, and thou filledst it with dark parables. 16. Thy name went farre vnto the Ilands, and for thy peace thou wast beloued. 17. The countreys marueiled at thee for thy Songs, and Prouerbs, and Parables, and interpretations.
