Item description for The Richest Man Who Ever Lived: King Solomon's Secrets to Success, Wealth, and Happiness - Vol. 1: The Book Mishle - Proverbs - Hebrew / English by King Solomon, J P S Translation & J. P. S...
The original Hebrew title of the book of Proverbs is "Mishle Shlomoh" ("Proverbs of Solomon"). When translated into Greek and Latin, the title took on different forms. In the Greek Septuagint (LXX) the title became "paroimai paroimiae" ("Proverbs"). In the Latin vulgate the title was "Proverbial," from which the English title of Proverbs is derived.
The authorship of Proverbs has not been easy to determine. Solomon's name appears in Proverbs 1:1, "The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, King of Israel," although this does not necessarily mean that he was the author. It was often the custom to place the name of the King or someone of prominence in writings in order to honour them, or to give those writings more prestige. However, Solomon is often mentioned as someone who has extensive wisdom in the Bible as well as in extra-Biblical literature. It is also said that people came from all over to hear the wisdom of Solomon. The general assumption is that Solomon was a part of the authorship to some extent, but that the book was not solely his work. There are also names linked to other sections of the book, as well as elements of disunity within the book that suggest more than one author.
No wonder the wisest man who ever lived, also became the richest

Proverbs Nov 4, 2007
Another disappointment. I expected this to be the Book of Proverbs with additonal commentary. This product is simply a large font English / Hebrew edition of the Book of Proverbs, English on the left page and the Hebrew on the right page. Similar to the Qur'an having Aramaic, I guess the publisher / editor felt there was some magic in having the Hebrew even if there is no understanding of what you're looking at. This may be of benefit for those studing Hebrew but for the average individual wanting to study God's word and gleaning its wisdom, save your money and just read Proverbs in your Bible.
