Gathering info on Solomon and his control over demons to put together for a post.

1 Kings 4 LEB​
(29) God gave wisdom to Solomon and very great discernment, as well as breadth of understanding, as the sand which is on the edge of the seashore.​
(30) The wisdom of Solomon was greater than the wisdom of all the people of the east and more than all the wisdom of Egypt.​
(31) He was wiser than all the men: Ethan the Ezrahite; Heman, Calcol, and Darda the children of Mahol; and he was very well known.​
(32) He spoke three thousand proverbs, and his songs were one thousand and five.​
(33) He spoke concerning the trees, from the cedar which is in Lebanon up to the hyssop which grows on the wall; he also spoke concerning the animals, concerning the birds, concerning the creeping things, and concerning the fish.​
(34) They came from all the nations to hear the wisdom of Solomon; from all the kings of the earth who had heard of his wisdom.​

Well, that's a lot more than what we have in our modern bibles.
(The LXX, Septuagint, says there were 5000 which is even more.)
Of course our modern bibles were put together long before we had access to a lot of manuscripts that we now have access to.
The Dead Sea Scrolls gave us a lot of writings we did not have before, and they (the Dead Sea Scrolls) have extra Psalms of Solomon four of which specifically tell of exorcising demons found in 11Q (cave 11 of Qumran) more specifically known as 11Q:5: column 7.

Solomon, a son of David, as Jesus would be; a king of Israel with divine knowledge, as Jesus would be.
So the Messiah, son of King David, would be expected to follow the typology of Solomon ..... full of divine wisdom and power over demons.

And notice the kings that come to Solomon because of his wisdom ...... all the kings of the earth (verse 34).
Those would be kings of the Gentile pagan world who were entrenched in learning and practicing divine knowledge of the gods.
And notice that two areas of kings are specifically mentioned in verse 30 (from the east and from Egypt).
Two areas that were world famous for seeking and practicing divine knowledge of the gods.

Here is one of the Psalms in the Dead Sea Scrolls about songs (psalms or utterances) that David wrote (which is not in our modern bible):

Now David son of Jesse was wise, and a light like the light of the sun, a scribe, and understanding and perfect in all his ways before God and men. And Yahweh gave to him a spirit of understanding and light. And he wrote three thousand six hundred psalms, including songs to sing before the altar over the whole burnt offering for every day, for all the days of the year, three hundred and sixty-four, and for Sabbath offerings, fifty-two songs, and for the first day of the month and for all the holidays, and for the day of atonement, thirty songs. So all the songs which he spoke were four hundred and forty-six, and four songs for making music over those who are possessed. So there were four thousand and fifty. All these he spoke in prophecy which had been given to him before the Most High.​

Interesting to note that four extra psalms of Solomon found in Dead Sea Scrolls specifically talk about exorcising demons, and that is the same amount mentioned here in this psalm of David.

Another psalm in the Dead Sea Scrolls not in our modern bible:

1 For a maggot cannot praise you nor a worm tell your loving-kindness.​
2 The living, the living can praise you, even those whose foot stumbles can praise you.​
3 When you reveal your loving kindness to them and you teach righteousness to them.​
4 For in your hand is the soul of every living thing; the breath of all flesh you have given.​
5 Deal with us, Yahweh, according to your goodness, according to your great compassion, and according to your many righteous deeds.​
6 Yahweh hears the voice of those who love his name and does not abandon his loving kindness to them.​
7 Blessed be Yahweh, who does righteous deeds, crowning his saints with loving kindness and compassion.​
8 My soul cries out to praise your name, to praise in song for your loving kindness​
9 to proclaim your faithfulness, of your praise there is no end!​
10 I was near death for my sins, and my iniquities have sold me to Sheol;​
11 but you delivered me, Yahweh, according to your great compassion, and according to your many righteous deeds.​
12 Indeed I love your name, and in your shadow I find refuge.​
13 When I remember your strength my heart is brave, and I lean on your mercies.​
14 Forgive my sin, Yahweh, and purify me from my iniquity.​
15 Give me a spirit of faith and knowledge; don’t let me be dishonored in iniquity.​
16 Don’t let Satan rule over me, nor an unclean spirit;​
17 neither let pain nor the evil purpose take possession of my bones.​
18 For you, Yahweh, are my praise, and in you I hope all the day.​
19 My brothers rejoice with me and the house of my father, who are astonished by the graciousness...​
20…forever I will rejoice in you.​

Even the LXX (Septuagint) has an extra psalm (151) in it that our modern bible does not have.
It's not a Psalm split into two, but is a completely separate Psalm.

Psalms 91 (that is in our modern bible)

Psalms 91 LEB​
(1) One who lives in the secret place of the Most High will lodge in the shadow of Shaddai.​
(2) I will say to Yahweh, "You are my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust."​
(3) For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler, from the plague of destruction.​
(4) With his feathers he will cover you, and under his wings you can take refuge. His faithfulness will be a shield and a buckler.​
(5) You need not fear the terror of the night, or the arrow that flies by day,​
(6) or the plague that spreads in the darkness, or the destruction that devastates at noon.​
(7) A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.​
(8) You will only look with your eyes, and see the punishment of the wicked.​
(9) For you, O Yahweh, are my refuge. You have made the Most High your dwelling place.​
(10) No harm will befall you, and no plague will come near your tent.​
(11) For he will command his angels concerning you, to watch over you in all your ways.​
(12) In their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone.​
(13) You will tread on lion and viper; you will trample young lion and serpent.​
(14) Because he loves me, therefore I will deliver him; I will protect him because he knows my name.​
(15) He will call upon me and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue and honor him.​
(16) With long life I will satisfy him, and show him my salvation.​

In the Dictionary of Deities and Demons in the Bible we have these terminologies as specific demons.
Dictionary of Deities and Demons in the Bible Online — Brill
referenceworks.brillonline.com referenceworks.brillonline.com
(unfortunately this link does not give the full description but only the first paragraph or two of the description.)

Terror of the Night פחד לילה​
Paḥad laylâ is hap.leg. in the OT, in Ps. 91.5, where it appears in close conjunction with several terms referring to various demons (see below). Another combination of the word paḥad, lit. ‘terror, dread’, and laylâ, lit. ‘night’, occurs in Cant. 3.8 where it also refers to a certain type of demon (see already the Targumîm and Krauss [1936] for references to other rabbinical sources). See also Deut. 28.66. ​

We also have this referenced in our modern bibles in Song of Solomon:

Solomon Arrives for the Wedding
Song of Solomon 3 LEB​
(6) What is this coming up from the desert like a column of smoke, perfumed with myrrh and frankincense from all the fragrant powders of the merchant?​
(7) Look! It is Solomon's portable couch! Sixty mighty men surround it, the mighty men of Israel.​
(8) All of them wield swords; they are trained in warfare, each with his sword at his thigh to guard against terror in the night.​

Isaiah 34 LEB
(14) And desert creatures shall meet with hyenas, and a goat-demon shall call to his neighbor; surely there Lilith shall repose, and she shall find a resting place for herself.

This demon entity was known for attacking brides and grooms trying to prevent conception (which usually takes place during the night) and also known for the death of children dying in the night.
Fitting that Solomon shows up at this wedding prepared to prevent this demon entity from messing with the bride and groom.

arrow that flies by day
In the LXX (Septuagint) this Greek phrase is translated as "mid day demon".
In the Dictionary of Deities and Demons in the Bible (same link as above).

Midday Demon Δαιμόνιον Μεσημβρινόν​
The Midday Demon is found in the Septuagint version of Ps. 91.6 (LXX Ps. 90.6).​
In Ps. 91.5–6, the Hebrew psalmist declares that the one who takes refuge in the Almighty will not fear: “The Terror of the night nor the Arrow that flies by day, nor the Pestilence (Deber) that stalks in darkness nor the Destruction (Qeṭeb) that wastes at noonday”.​

plague that spreads in the darkness​
Deber דבר​
The accepted meaning ‘pestilence’ may be a specific Hebrew development with scarce support from other Semitic languages (cf. Ug. dbr ‘pestilence’ [?], Ar. dabr ‘death’, dabara ‘ulcer’); Akk. dibiru ‘misfortune, calamity’ is probably a Sumerian word, having no connexion with Hebr deber (CAD D. 134–135). Deber is one of the three proverbial causes of death on a wide scale. It is attested some 50 times in the Bible along with war (sword, blood) and famine (mainly…..​

the destruction that devastates at noon​
Qeteb קטב​
The term Qeṭeb appears four times in the OT. Its basic significance is ‘destruction’, (perhaps etymologically ‘that which is cut off’) though the contexts suggest that other nuances are present. Various scholars have translated it as ‘plague’ or ‘pestilence’ in the context of its parallel use with rešep, deber. The term has overtones of a divine name.​
II. Identity​
qẓb occurs once in Ugaritic (KTU 1.5 ii:24) and may be a kinsman of Mot (J. C. de Moor, ‘O Death, Where is Thy Sting’, Ascribe to the L…...​

Also notice that the terminology used is in the above Song of Solomon attending the wedding is battle geared.
This could possibly be the same context Paul is referencing in his epistle that speaks of having the full armor of GOD to battle not against flesh and blood but against spirit entities of wickedness.
Ephesians 6 LEB​
(11) Put on the full armor of God, so that you may be able to stand against the stratagems of the devil,​
(12) because our struggle is not against blood and flesh, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world rulers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.​
(13) Because of this, take up the full armor of God, in order that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand.​
(14) Stand therefore, girding your waist with truth, and putting on the breastplate of righteousness,​
(15) and binding shoes under your feet with the preparation of the good news of peace,​
(16) in everything taking up the shield of faith, with which you are able to quench all the flaming arrows of the evil one,​
(17) and receive the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God,​

Also in

Habakkuk 3 LEB
(3) God came from Teman; the Holy One from Mount Paran. Selah. His splendor covers the heavens, and his praise fills the earth.
(4) And his brightness was like the light; flashing rays came from his hand for him; And there is the covering of his strength.
(5) Before him went Disease [Deber], and Pestilence went out at his feet.

Strong's H7565
From H8313; a live coal; by analogy lightning; figuratively an arrow (as flashing through the air); specifically fever: - arrow, (burning) coal, burning heat, + spark, hot thunderbolt.

Psalms 91 is full of terminology connected to demons.
Hearing, believing and trusting the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross; His death, burial and resurrection for the forgiveness of sins and REPENTING, seals us with that Holy Spirit of Promise - EPHESIANS 1:10-14 KJV - The Lord is not slack concerning His promise. 2 Peter 3:9 KJV - 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV - Ephesians 1:10-14 KJV - Romans 10:9-10 KJV - Romans 10:13 - Romans 10:17 - Ephesians 1:7 KJV - Colossians 1:14 KJV -
