Solomon was famous for his wisdom and wealth, leading people like the Queen of Sheba to praise the God of Israel:

1 Kings 10:8-10 How happy your people must be! What a privilege for your officials to stand here day after day, listening to your wisdom! Praise the Lord your God, who delights in you and has placed you on the throne of Israel. Because of the Lord’s eternal love for Israel, he has made you king so you can rule with justice and righteousness.
