The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel;
The Argument - The wonderful love of God toward his Church is declared in this book: for as much as the sum and effect of the whole Scriptures is here set forth in these brief sentences, which partly contain doctrine, and partly manners, and also exhortations to both: of which the first nine Chapters are as a preface full of grave sentences and deep mysteries, to assure the hearts of men to the diligent reading of the parables that follow: which are left as a precious jewel to the Church, of those three thousand parables mentioned in 1Ki 4:32 and were gathered and committed to writing by Solomon's servants and incited by him.

The Book of Proverbs
This collection of sententious sayings is divine wisdom applied to the earthly conditions of the people of God. That the Proverbs were Solomon's (1.1) implies no more than that he gathered into orderly arrangement sayings already current amongst the people, the wisdom of the Spirit, perhaps through many centuries (Eccl 12:9). Chapters 25.-29. were current in Hezekiah's time (Eccl 25:1). Chapters 30. and 31. are by Agur and Lemuel.
The book is in six parts:
I. To sons, 1.-7.
II. The praise of wisdom, 8.-9.
III. The folly of sin, 10.-19.
IV. Warnings and instructions, 20.-29.
V. The words of Agur, 30. The words of King Lemuel, 31.
