Book of Proverbs

With the exception of Proverbs 30-31, the proverbs were spoken by Solomon about 1,000 B.C. Proverbs 1-24 were perhaps written by him in a book. Proverbs 25-29 were Solomon's proverbs added to the first part of the book by Hezekiah about 730 B.C. The last 2 chapters were added at an unknown time.  The book shows the practical moral and spiritual truth in proverbial form for people of God (2 Tim. 3:15-17).
