Wisdom, also known as the Wisdom of Solomon, is one of the deuterocanonical books of the Bible that are not translations of Hebrew originals.
Although it is written as if by Solomon, its language and ideas alike are entirely of Greek origin, For this reason it is considered the most classical Greek in the Septuagint.
For example, Matthew 27:43 (which is connected to Jesus, and which is uniquely Matthian material with no parallels in other gospels) is very similar in language and theme to Wisdom 2:13, which in turn seems to be alluding to the suffering servant of Psalm 22:8.

Practically all scholars, even in conservative circles, agree that the book should not be attributed to Solomon, while a linguistic examination of the work also rules out with a reasonable margin of certainty that its original language might have been Hebrew or Aramaic.
