This book provides a treatment of Proverbs 1:20-33; 8:1-36 and 9:1-6, generally called the three speeches of Wisdom. The aim was to employ these speeches as starting points, from which the remaining material in Proverbs 1-9 is examined, evaluated and interpreted. Along with aspects of poeticity and literary value, this work also investigates how these speeches fit into the overall literary structure of Proverbs 1-9. In this respect and with its primary focus on these speeches of Wisdom, this book constitutes a unique treatment of these Hebrew Bible texts within one monograph.
