1 Kings 4:29 God gave Solomon great wisdom and understanding, and knowledge too vast to be measured.
30 In fact, his wisdom exceeded that of all the wise men of the East and the wise men of Egypt.
31 He was wiser than anyone else, including Ethan the Ezrahite and Heman, Calcol, and Darda -- the sons of Mahol. His fame spread throughout all the surrounding nations.
32 He composed some 3,000 proverbs and wrote 1,005 songs.
33 He could speak with authority about all kinds of plants, from the great cedar of Lebanon to the tiny hyssop that grows from cracks in a wall. He could also speak about animals, birds, reptiles, and fish.
34 And kings from every nation sent their ambassadors to listen to the wisdom of Solomon. (NLT)
The first mention of wisdom speaks of a spirit of wisdom.
Exo 28:2  And thou shalt make holy garments for Aaron thy brother for glory and for beauty.
Exo 28:3  And thou shalt speak unto all that are wise hearted, whom I have filled with the spirit of wisdom, that they may make Aaron's garments to consecrate him, that he may minister unto me in the priest's office.
Wisdom comes from God.

James 1:5  If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
A proverb of Solomon
Prov 3:13  Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.
Prov 3:14  For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.
Prov 3:15  She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.
Prov 3:16  Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour.
Prov 3:17  Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.
Prov 3:18  She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.
Prov 3:19  The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.
Prov 3:20  By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew.
Prov 3:21  My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion:
Prov 3:22  So shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck.

The clever twisted wisdom of the devil is evil and for evil purposes. There are many laws now that are ungodly.
What are we to do with the wiles of the devil?
Mat 10:16  Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
Mat 10:17  But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;
Mat 10:18  And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.
Mat 10:19  But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.
Mat 10:20  For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.

The Spirit of God your Father is wisdom, the mind of Christ, the Holy Spirit. God speaks through you who are his own.
