What do Psalms say about wisdom?
Elokim Your judgment to the king give;
And your righteousness
to the son of the king.”
This is the last of the psalms by David, she explains. As he passes the yolk of leadership to his son, Solomon, he gives his son a blessing that the wisdom to judge be guided by God’s infinite wisdom.
With this, Solomon, whose name is derived from the same root as "peace," does reign. His kingship over Israel is notable for breaking all barriers. Great kindness toward the needy, and with that wealth beyond measure, the building of a Temple so beautiful, it was known far and wide. Its treasure and the Temple’s greatness were so vast that when conquered the marble and gold was used to build the Colosseum - the “jewel of Rome” and later quarried to build the Vatican. Its foundation stones were larger and heavier than the stones of the pyramids.
For King David, the sweet Psalmist of Israel, through whom the timeless praises of God flowed - the most meaningful blessing he could give his son was the blessing of wisdom. And with the blessing of wisdom, all the many blessings of the time of Solomon's reign flowed.
Wisdom is a quality each of us is able to attain. The eternal wisdom of God is accessible to us since all wisdom ultimately comes from God, the source of all blessing. And so the last psalm of David ends thus:
“Blessed (the source of all blessing)
is the Lord God,
the God of Israel,
who alone performs wonders.
Blessed is His glorious name for ever,
And may the whole earth be filled
with His glory,
Amen, and Amen.
The prayers of David,
son of Jesse are concluded."
