Random Quote #49 topic: hebraic, Translations from the Talmud, Midrashim and Kabbala

"And Solomon's wisdom excelled" (1 Kings iv. 30). Thou findest that when
Solomon desired to build the Temple he sent to Pharaoh Necho a request
to send him artisans on hire. Pharaoh assembled his astrologers, who
pointed out to him such artisans as were destined to die in the course
of that year, and these he despatched to Solomon; but he, through the
Holy Ghost, seeing the fate that impended, provided each of them with a
shroud and sent them back to Pharaoh with the message, "Hast thou no
shrouds in which to bury thine own dead? Behold here I have provided
them with them!" "For he was wiser than all men" (1 Kings iv. 31); "than
all men," even than the first man, Adam.

THE MIDRASHIM, _Yalkut Eliezer_, fol. 65, col. 2, n. 36.
