Discussion for 2 Chronicles 1:10

  • Judith Ann Crouch for verse 10
    In my Life Application version of the Bible the notes express Wisdom is the ability to make good decisions based on proper discernment and judgment. Knowledge, in this verse, refers to the practical know how necessary for handling everyday matters. Wisdom applies knowledge!
  • Dannette Wright for verse 10
    According to II Chron. 1:10-12,
    Was King Shalomah the wises man in Yashar'al, He asked for wisdom and knowledge to rule over the people not for himself, because if we are teahing others we must apply the same rules to ourselves as we will do for others.
    Shalom,
