When translated into Greek and Latin, the title took on different forms: in the Greek Septuagint (LXX) it became Παροιμίαι Paroimiai ("Proverbs"); in the Latin Vulgate the title was Proverbia, from which the English name is derived.

The book of Proverbs is the central wisdom book of the Old Testament. The Proverbs are too often neglected by Christians today, but they are also too often misunderstood. The introduction in the first volume thoroughly covers issues such as genre and the theology of the book. Very highly recommended.

Over twenty-five years in the making, this much-anticipated commentary promises to be the standard study of Proverbs for years to come. Written by eminent Old Testament scholar Bruce Waltke, this two-volume commentary is unquestionably the most comprehensive work on Proverbs available.Grounded in the new literary criticism that has so strengthened biblical interpretation of late, Waltke's commentary on Proverbs demonstrates the profound, ongoing relevance of this Old Testament book for Christian faith and life. A thorough introduction addresses such issues as text and versions, structure, authorship, and theology. The detailed commentary itself explains and elucidates Proverbs as "theological literature." Waltke's highly readable style -- evident even in his original translation of the Hebrew text -- makes his scholarly work accessible to teachers, pastors, Bible students, and general readers alike.

Bruce Waltke's commentary on Proverbs (2 vols.) provides indepth linguistic and theological insights into the text. We often read the individual proverbs as simply neat insights into life. The proverbs can be much more than this, though. The proverbs are the product of community reflection upon biblical teaching and everyday life. Waltke's treatment of the text helps the reader to look deeply into the use of specific words, including how they are used in other OT passages, and into the deeper theological meaning. I highly recommend both volumes.

Since this is a 2 volume treatment, there is sometimes more information than a reader might want. For a briefer treatment, but one that is also very helpful, I recommend Dave Bland's commentary on Proverbs published by College Press (Bland's text also includes Ecclesiastes and Song of Songs).

A superb exposition of Proverbs, and how to understand and apply this timeless wisdom. A privilege to read. A must for the library of the serious student of the Bible.

I had heard this entire series on the internet, what a privilege to have it in print and be able to go over the material again. Waltke's approach to the first 10 chapters is unique. Parents would do well to digest these chapters in raising their kids in a Biblical way by giving them instruction as to what they will face in the world around them.

The commentary is written for readers with more linguistic and theological education than I.

It is everything I thought it would be.

Dr. Waltke shows his wide awareness of the literature on Proverbs and his deep appreciation of the text. The segment on the theology of Proverbs was an especially strong presentation.
Had to read this book for my Proverbs class, and I very much enjoyed the book. Will be looking forward to purchasing the rest of the set!
