Who was the Isralite king known for his wise sayings, or proverbss?
It wasn't Sargon. He wasn't an Israelite.
I think it is Solomen but I'm not sure.
You're right! Solomon (note spelling) was the the Israelite king noted for his wisdom. The wisdom of Solomon is a common expression even today.
One of the stories about him concerned two mothers who wanted the same baby. Solomon offered to cut the baby in half. Of course the real mother protested -- and so was awarded the child.
Your a brilliant person Ms. Sue. For that myth is completley true.
The other woman who was fighting for the baby said nothing, I do believe.
