wisdom of an angel
2 Samuel 14:20
14:20 wisdom of an angel. This testimony of the “wise woman” of Tekoah (II Samuel 14:2), while exaggerating David’s wisdom, does indicate that the highest degree of wisdom to which human wisdom can be compared is that of “the wisdom of an angel of God, to know all things that are in the earth.” Angels are said also to “excel in strength” (Psalm 103:20). Thus angels evidently understand natural processes and can manipulate and control them to some considerable degree.
