] The Judgment of Solomon is a story from the Hebrew Bible in which King Solomon of Israel ruled between two women both claiming to be the mother of a child. Solomon revealed their true feelings and relationship to the child by suggesting to cut the baby in two, with each woman to receive half. With this strategy, he was able to discern the non-mother as the woman who entirely approved of this proposal, while the actual mother begged that the sword might be sheathed and the child committed to the care of her rival. Some consider this approach to justice an archetypal example of an impartial judge displaying wisdom in making a ruling.
The red blood who feeds the beast who knows the foreign tongue
To find out why the red blood is feeding the beast was the question
Silence put them in greater danger
So the can’t save them all choice-of two ways appears which care for most
The other red blood or the beast
The reason he is doing this, is to know who one is
Kill the beast and let the red blood live or save the beast and could be death sentence
The feeder saved the beast which passed the shapeshifter test so both red bloods were let go.
