Quotes from The Book of Proverbs

Valerian (circa 450)

The Book of Proverbs is the second book of the third section, called Writings, of the Hebrew Bible and a book of the Christian Old Testament. Proverbs is not merely an anthology but a “collection of collections” of poems, essays, and sayings relating to a pattern of life which lasted for more than a millennium. The arrangement of this collection began during the time of Solomon, about 961-922 B.C.E., and although most scholars agree that the earlier chapters were written by him, the later chapters are thought to include material from a wide variety of periods, all after Solomon’s time.

Happy is the man that findeth Wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies; and all things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.
