15. Because Solomon asked for wisdom rather than for long life and riches, what besides wisdom did God give him?

Answer

"Because thou has asked this thing; . . . behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a
wise and an understanding heart. . . . And I have also given thee that which thou has not asked, both riches,
and honor." 1 Kings 3: 11-13.
