scripture content tends to come with a raft of premises
pertaining to the source of the text and its significance.
where it comes to Solomon or any particular cult's god,
suffice it to say that i don't agree with their history,
their cosmology, or, in some cases, their values. take
this into consideration when reading my reply below.

I don't think i can be sure of the meaning of the term you
are employing above, but in general, wisdom is attained through
discipline, breadth and depth of experience, and mysticism.
> and use it wisely? ...
it is usually information that is used wisely, lest the
wisdom compound itself in redundancy. in order to recognize
wisdom so that it won't be lost pay heed to its depth and
duration of pragmatic usefulness. very often what is wise
is what takes into account long patterns of time or of
phenomena rather than merely immediate dynamics (which is
more attuned to science and principles of physics).
secondary confirmation (admitted insufficient if one has
not already confirmed the status of the deity) is to see
if the God has objections or refinements it would make to
the data in question.
