6 Truth applied correctly The wisdom that is the subject of Proverbs is not merely intellectual and philosophical. It is practical, involving what the person who is wise does in any given situation. It is ethical, meaning that it gives moral guidance and leads to right living. And it is religious, in that its foundation is Gods wisdom; as the book states, The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (9.10). William David Reyburn and Euan McG. Fry, A Handbook on Proverbs, UBS handbook series; Helps for translators (New York: United Bible Societies, 2000), 15.

7 Commentaries on Proverbs generally give some sort of definition of the meaning of wisdom. Etienne Charpentier, for instance, says this: Wisdom is the art of living a good life, seeking what leads to life and not to death. It is a reflection on the great human questions: life, death, love, suffering, evil, mens relationship with God and with one another, social life, etc. (How to Read the Old Testament, page 80). William David Reyburn and Euan McG. Fry, A Handbook on Proverbs, UBS handbook series; Helps for translators (New York: United Bible Societies, 2000), 15.

8 The attempt to identify and isolate wisdom literature on the basis of form criticism has not been successful. That is, one cannot say that the proverb is the characteristic form of wisdom since a great deal of what must be reckoned as wisdom literature is not in the proverbial form. Wisdom cannot be confined to certain forms, nor can certain forms be confined to wisdom literature. Nevertheless, as a matter of observation and classification, it is possible to assert that certain forms are most frequently found in wisdom literature. Duane A. Garrett, vol. 14, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs, electronic ed., Logos Library System; The New American Commentary (Nashville: Broadman & Holman Publishers, 2001, c1993), 29.
