Thousands of years ago, there was a very wise King called Solo mon. He was a king of the Jews（犹太人）。 We find many stories about him in the Bible （圣经）。 Here's one of them which shows how wise he was.
Once there were two women who lived in the same room, and they each had a baby. One night one of the babies died, and its mother took the other womans child, and put it in her own bed instead.
The next morning they had a quarrel."No, this is my child. The dead one is yours. " they said to each other.
Each one wanted the living baby, but no one could tell to whom it belonged. So they went to see King solomon.
When Solomon heard their story, he said，
Bring me a knife Cut the child in two and give each woman one half That's very fair. Oh, wise King！ said one woman.
Give her my child. Let it be hers, but don't kill the child, King！
Then Solomon made his decision and the problem was solved.
