One day, two women came to king Solomon, arguing over a baby, each one of them claiming the child was hers.
King Solomon couldn’t figure out whose baby it was, so he told them that he will cut the baby in half, and give each of them one-half.
The first women agreed with the King and said: “If I can’t have the child, then she can’t have him either”.
The second women begged King Solomon not to hurt the child. She said to the King: “Give her the baby. I’d rather lose the child than to get him killed”.
Solomon was sure that this second woman was the real mother and he ordered that the baby would be given to her.
