Proverbs

Author/Date

Primarily Solomon (1:1), with sections attributed to “the wise” (22:17), Agur (30:1), and King Lemuel (31:1).  Little is known of the latter two.  Solomon reigned approximately 970-930 BC.  The staff of King Hezekiah, who lived about two hundred years later, “copied out” the latter chapters of the book we have today (25:1).
