It’s possible that your answer was not accepted because of the said to me/told me difference, but I wonder about the word “wise”.
In 2 Samuel 20:16, there is אישה חכמה (pronounced issha khakhama) and that translates to “wise woman” rather than “smart woman”.
Modern Hebrew has a similar meaning to biblical Hebrew for this word; DL accepts “wise”.
Wise is of course different than smart. A dictator can be smart, but most people would not call him wise. I like the meaning of wise as “skilled in the art of godly living”.
