  Book of Proverbs - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Book of Proverbs is one of the books of the Ketuvim of the Tanakh and of the Writings of the Old Testament.
Although there is mention of Solomon’s name in Proverbs 1:1 “The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel”, this does not mean for certain that he was the author.
The desire of the book was to associate the ideas of the covenant relationship with God to the everyday lives of those who were reading the wisdom literature, as many of the proverbs may have been familiar simply through culture as mentioned earlier.

 Book of Proverbs
The third part of the book (xxv-xxix) bears the inscription: "These are also Míshlê Shelomoh, which the men of Ezechias, king of Juda, copied out." By their miscellaneous character, their couplet form, etc., the proverbs of this third part resemble those of x-xxii, 16.
The Book of Proverbs was numbered among the "Hagiographa" (writings held by the ancient Hebrews as less sacred and authoritative than either the "Law" or the "Prophets"), and, in consequence, copyists felt naturally less bound to transcribe its text with scrupulous accuracy.
Again, the copyists of Proverbs knew, or at least thought they knew, by memory the exact words of the pithy sayings they had to write out; hence arose involuntary changes which, once introduced, were perpetuated or even added to by subsequent transcribers.

The primary function of the book of Proverbs is to instruct youth.
To believe otherwise is a subjective judgment that the book is lying about who wrote it, based on the presupposition that the Bible is not the word of God, that it is not inerrant, and therefore may have such lies in it.
Proverbs 30:1 is then rendered in Greek as "These things says the man to those who trust in God and I cease." Notice that this makes little sense, indicating that the translators of the Septuagint (c.

Since Proverbs does not demonstrate "national" references, it must have been composed after the fall of the nation.But the lack of national references is a part of the genre of literature known as wisdom literature and the multi-cultural nature setting of Israel.
Proverbs 22--24 were probably a source for the Egyptian work, The Wisdom of Amenemope which has been dated to from 1000 B.C. to the Persian and/or Greek periods7 D. Conclusion: Tenth to Sixth Century 1.
Some of Proverbs was probably compiled as a canonical book at a later time (at least during the time of Hezekiah (726-698 B.C.)Perhaps the placement of the two sections of anonymous sayings by the wisemen (22:17--24:22; and 24:23-34) suggests that they came from period between Solomon's reign and the collection of Hezekiah's scribes8 3.

Llull pressed for the study of Arabic and other then-insufficiently studied languages in Spain for the purpose of converting Muslims to Christianity.
Ramon Llull also had a strong mystical side, instantiated in his work The Book of the Lover and His Beloved, written in order to illuminate weary, sterile souls.
With the 2001 discovery of his lost manuscripts Ars notandi, Ars eleccionis, and Alia ars eleccionis, Llull is given credit for discovering the Borda count and Condorcet criterion, which Jean-Charles de Borda and Marquis de Condorcet independently discovered centuries later.

Answer: Since the Book of Proverbs is one of the books of wisdom, it is especially good that we study it.
The book has been called "Wisdom," "All Virtuous Wisdom," The Wise Book, and "Educated Wisdom." The design of Proverbs is simply to impart wisdom (see 1: 1-4, 7-9, 24-33).

The Book of Proverbs is a collection of moral and philosophical maxims of a wide range of subjects presented in a poetic form.
In Solomon's day there was a class of leaders in the eastern nations known as "teachers of wisdom," of which he was the most conspicuous; a supposition which gives countenance to the thought that the address, "My son," is not that of a father to a child, but a teacher to a pupil.
Provebs is classed with the poetical books of the Bible, but we must content ourselves with a single illustration of the poetic form taken from The Literary Study of the Bible.
