Introduction to Proverbs
Proverbs is an early Jewish and later Christian (O.T.) book on how a devoted believer can live discreetly in this world. Defined as biblical and rational wisdom, primarily credited to Solomon, the Proverbs address the questions of values, moral behavior, meaning of human life and right relational conduct. The underlying assumption is Proverbs 1:7.
