The book of Proverbs contains the wise sayings of Solomon and others, given under God's direct control.

They give good advice about life. Wisdom is the principal thing and is shown to be more precious than gold, or silver, or jewels, or anything else this world can give.

The wisdom contained in the book of Proverbs - and in the rest of God's word - is the knowledge of God's principles and practice.

The truly wise not only know God's word, they also try to live it. They believe and honour Him first in their lives and behave carefully towards others.

A large section of Proverbs (chapters 10-24) contains valuable advice for God's children in their day-to-day experiences. The ruin that comes from sloth and the folly of ignorance are among the warnings given.
