More Proverbs of Solomon

To read the Bible in a year, read Proverbs 25-27.
Some of the proverbs of Solomon circulated orally, but thankfully, a later king, a descendant of Solomon, wrote some of those proverbs down that we might enhance our lives with them, “These also are proverbs of Solomon which the men of Hezekiah king of Judah copied” (Proverbs 25:1).
Solomon received his wisdom from God. Therefore, these are the proverbs of God.
The wisdom of God outshines the wisdom of man.
The men of Hezekiah copied the proverbs of Solomon that had only been passed on orally, and those proverbs go to the end of chapter 29.
It must be that the first 24 chapters were either written out by Solomon, or his scribes did it, but what was written then was not the totality of Solomon’s wisdom.
However, we have what God wanted us to have. You would bless yourself mightily, if you read a chapter in Proverbs everyday.
