  • ldea, Edom, and other nations had their bodies of “wise men.” Such bodies evidently included the priests and government officials but were not restricted to such; they probably included all those ‘elders’ of the nations who were particularly known for their wisdom and who resided near the capital so as to be available for counselling. The monarchs of Persia had a privy council of seven wise men for quick consultation, and lesser Persian officials might have their own staff of wise men. Joseph, by the help of God’s spirit, displayed such discretion and wisdom that Egypt’s ruling Pharaoh made him his prime minister. “Moses was instructed in all the wisdom of the Egyptians” and was “powerful in his words and deeds” even prior to God’s making him his spokesman. But this human wisdom and ability did not qualify Moses for God’s purpose. After his first attempt (at the age of about 40) to bring relief to his Israelite brothers, Moses had to wait another 40 years before God sent him forth, a spiritually wise man, to lead Israel out of Egypt. Solomon was already wise before entering into full kingship, yet he humbly acknowledged himself “but a little boy” in prayer to Jehovah and sought his aid in judging God’s people. He was rewarded with “a wise and understanding heart” unequalled among Judah’s kings. His wisdom surpassed the famed wisdom of the Orientals and of Egypt, making Jerusalem a place to which monarchs or their representatives travelled to learn from the Judean king. Certain women of ancient times were also noted for their wisdom. Not always used for good. Human wisdom can be used for good or for bad. In the latter case it definitely betrays itself as wisdom that is only fleshly, not spiritual, not from God. Jehonadab was “a very wise man,” but his counsel to David’s son Amnon was based on shrewd strategy and manipulation of people by deceit, bringing dubious success and disastrous consequences. Absalom cunningly campaigned to unseat his royal father David and, upon occupying Jerusalem, solicited the advice of two of his father’s counselors, Ahithophel and Hushai, concerning what further steps he might shrewdly take. Ahithophel’s wise advice was consistently of such accuracy that it appeared as if it came from God. Nevertheless, he had become a traitor to God’s anointed, and Jehovah caused his wise battle plan to be rejected in favor of faithful Hushai’s plan, which skillfully played on Absalom’s vanity and human weaknesses to bring about his downfall. As Paul wrote of God: “‘He catches the wise in their own cunning.’ And again: ‘Jehovah knows that the reasonings of the wise men are futile. Apostate priests, prophets, and wise men of the Israelite nation in time led the people to oppose God’s counsel and commands as spoken by his loyal servants. As a result, Jehovah caused ‘the wisdom of their wise men to perish and the understanding of their discreet men to conceal itself , bringing the 500-year-old kingdom to ruin (as he later did to Jerusalem’s proud destroyer, Babylon, and to the boastful dynasty of Tyre. They rejected spiritual wisdom in favour of fleshly wisdom.
