Of wise men in the bible

The exploits of Solomon, he who we are told was the wisest of men, resemble those of Nero with one striking difference, YHWH put a stamp of approval on them.

He strikes Adonijah, sends Abiathar to exile, orders the killing of Joab, restricted Shimei’s movement just to name a few.

Or maybe this is how to be wise, eliminate your enemies first.
