Midrash Al Yithallel (Hebrew: מדרש אל יתהלל) is a small midrash containing stories from the lives of the wise Solomon, the mighty David, and the rich Korah, illustrating Jer. ix. 23, whence comes the title:

Thus said the Lord: Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom (אל יתהלל חכם בחכמתו); Let not the strong man glory in his strength (ואל יתהלל הגבור בגבורתו); Let not the rich man glory in his riches (אל יתהלל עשיר בעשרו). But only in this should one glory: In his earnest devotion to Me. For I the Lord act with kindness, justice, and equity in the world; For in these I delight —declares the Lord.

Jeremiah 9:22–23, JPS translation

The text has been published according to a manuscript at Munich by A. Jellinek (B. H. vi. 106-108), and according to a manuscript from Yemen by Grünhut (Sefer ha-Liḳḳuṭim, i. 21 et seq.), with valuable references to sources and parallels. With the story of Solomon may be compared the passage cited in Jellinek (l.c. ii. 86 et seq., from the Emeḳ ha-Melek); the history of David is similar to the midrash of Goliath (ib. iv. 140 et seq.); and that of Korah to the passage in the Midrash Tehillim (ed. S. Buber on Ps. i. 15).
