Transcript of Book of Proverbs

Book of Proverbs Origin of the Proverbs Authors of the Proverbs King Solomon Solomon was the son of
King David and is said to have
written over 3,000 proverbs.
Many of them are found in the book
of Proverbs. Solomon wrote Proverbs
1:1--9:18, Proverbs 10:1--22:16,
and Proverbs 25:1--29:27 Wisemen The Wisemen are believed to be the ones who attended Solomon (1 Kings 4:31) including Ethan the Ezrahite, Heman, Calcol, and Darda, the sons of Mahol. The Wisemen are responsible for writing Proverbs 22:17--24:22 and Proverbs 24:23-34 The book of Proverbs set forth
the philosophy of practical life. It
is a sign to us that the Bible does
not despise common sense and
discretion. Purpose of the Proverbs being written Proverbs 1:2-7 gives a list of reasons for why
the Proverbs were written:
That people may know wisdom and discipline, may know intelligent sayings. (1:2)
May receive instruction in wise conduct, in what is right, just and fair; (1:3)
To help the simple gain prudence, and the youth gain knowledge and discretion, (1:4)
To increase learning, and to acquire skill in understanding, (1:5)
To understand Proverbs, riddles, and wise sayings, (1:6)
To enable the readers to learn and apply the Fear of the Lord to their lives. (1:7) Agur, son of Jakeh Historians are not really sure who
Agur was. Agur is responsible for
writing Proverbs 30:1-33 King Lemuel King Lemuel was a non-Israelite
who lived in the area of Uz where
people still believed in one true God. King Lemuel wrote
