The Holy Spirit is the source of wisdom

Job 32:6-9; Ac 6:9-10; 1Co 2:12-14 These references to the wisdom of Solomon make it clear that it was a gift from God. As the Spirit of God came upon other OT characters to equip them for office (e.g., Saul in 1Sa 10:10) it is not unreasonable to conclude that Solomon’s wisdom was also imparted through the Holy Spirit: 1Ki 3:8-9,12; 1Ki 4:29-34; 1Ki 10:1,23-24
Pr 2:6; Da 5:10-16 Daniel’s wisdom; Ac 6:3 the choosing of the Seven; Ac 15:28; 1Co 2:11; 1Co 12:8; Col 1:9

The Holy Spirit as teacher

Jn 14:26 See also Ne 9:20; Mt 10:19-20 pp Mk 13:11 pp Lk 12:12; 1Jn 2:27
