The scriptures reveal that God appeared to Solomon in a dream and asked, “What shall I give you?” Solomon responded, having asked for wisdom and knowledge to judge righteously (1 Kings 3:5–15, 2 Chron. 1). However, God blessed King Solomon to become the wisest, most honorable, and wealthiest man who ever lived. In 1 Kings 4:29–34, the scriptures declare: “Solomon spoke three thousand proverbs and sang one thousand and five songs.”
Although the Holy Bible is a compilation of numerous books and authors, the book of Proverbs, with its collection of wise sayings, is in a class by themselves. For approximately three thousand years, the proverbs or wise sayings of Solomon have stood the test of time, continuing to provide guidance in our foolish and sinful world. Solomon’s thought-provoking proverbs miraculously transcend racial, cultural, religious, language, and political barriers.
