    • Elliot Stabler: King Solomon said, "Bring me a sword. Divide the living child in two. Give half to one mother, half to the other."

      This Bible verse, 1 Kings 3:25, regards the story of two harlots who had gone to King Solomon to have him settle a custodial dispute. Both women, living in the same house, had birthed a son. When one of the boys died, one of the women claimed that the other had switched the children, whereas the other woman maintained that it was the other woman's child who had died. In order to settle the issue, King Solomon proposed cutting the child in half, and was able to determine the real mother by the woman who was willing to give up the child to save its life.
