Solomon’s Wisdom

King Solomon was the wisest man of his time. His fame spread far and wide. Once, the Queen of Seba came to test his wisdom. She brought two garlands of roses and asked the king, to take the natural one from them. Solomon thought for some time. It was very difficult to identify the real rose. Just then he saw some bees humming outside the window. King Solomon told his men to open the window. Then the bees came in and sat on the garland of real flowers. The king then pointed to that garland. The Queen of Seba was greatly charmed at his wisdom. She said, “May God grant you a long life. You are really ‘Solomon the wise’.”
