Who wrote the book of Proverbs?


By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, and honour, and life. Proverbs 22:4

King Solomon, son of King David wrote three books in the Old Testament. He wrote the Proverbs around 970 BC. He wrote the Song of Solomon (also known as the Song of Songs, or as the Canticles) around 940 BC. He wrote the Ecclesiastes around 935 BC.

God upon Solomon’s ‘dream’ asked that he by like his father David.

At Gibeon The LORD appeared to Solomon during the night in a dream, and God said, “Ask for whatever you want Me to give you.”

Solomon answered, “You have shown great kindness to your servant, my father David, because he was faithful to You and righteous and upright in heart. You have continued this great kindness to him and have given him a son to sit on his throne this very day.

“Now, LORD my God, You have made Your servant king in place of my father David. But I am only a little child and do not know how to carry out my duties. Your servant is here among the people You have chosen, a great people, too numerous to count or number. So give Your servant a discerning heart to govern Your people and to distinguish between right and wrong. For who is able to govern this great people of Yours?”

I will do what you have asked. I will give you a wise and discerning heart, so that there will never have been anyone like you, nor will there ever be.” 1 Kings 3:12

Have you asked? What do you ask? Seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened.
