The book of Proverbs is more than the sum of its parts. Even if some proverbs could be older, the overall composition stems from the late Persian or early Hellenistic period. By introducing the scribal student to the foundations of sapiential knowledge and its critical reflection, the book of Proverbs comes close to the critical wisdom of Job and Qohelet. In addition to a detailed exegesis of the biblical text, this commentary presents new parallels from Egyptian wisdom literature.
