Item description for Proverbs 1-9 (The Anchor Yale Bible Commentaries) by Michael V. Fox...

Overview
In Proverbs 1-9, Bible scholar Michael V. Fox translates and explains the meaning of the first nine chapters of this profound, timeless book, and examines their place in the intellectual history of ancient Israel. This thorough study of Proverbs includes a survey of the collections of ancient Near Eastern wisdom literature, as well as innovative and insightful comments. In addition to the translation and commentary proper, Fox includes several extended thematic essays on "Proverbs 1-9", covering such themes as the origins of personified wisdom, what wisdom is, and where wisdom can be heard, plus an appendix of textual notes. The format of the commentary makes it accessible to the general reader and also provides materials of special interest to scholars. This is the first of a two-volume commentary that accords Proverbs the depth of study it deserves.

Publishers Description
As we enter the new millennium, the search for wisdom is on, with no better place to look than the book of Proverbs. It transcends the ages with timeless wisdom:
-- "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge".
-- "For the Lord grants wisdom, at his behest come knowledge and good sense".
-- "Happy the man who has found wisdom, the man who obtains good sense. For better her profit than the profit of silver, her yield than that of fine gold. More precious is she than rubies; no valuables can match her".
-- "Attend, my son, and take my words, that the years of your life may increase".

In "Proverbs 1-9", Bible scholar Michael V. Fox translates and explains the meaning of the first nine chapters of this profound book. A thorough introduction to Proverb, highlighted by an examination of the Egyptian wisdom tradition, as well as a survey of ancient Near Eastern wisdom literature, provide the basis of detailed and insightful comments. In addition to the translation and commentary proper, Fox includes several extended thematic essays and textual notes on Proverbs 1-9, covering such themes as the origins of personified wisdom, what wisdom is, and where wisdom can be found. This substantive book, the first of a two-volume set, at last accords Proverbs the depth of study it deserves, and will assure it a life in print at least as long as the original 1965 Anchor Bible Commentary, Proverbs/Ecclesiastes.

Reviews - What do customers think about Proverbs 1-9 (The Anchor Yale Bible Commentaries)?

Indispensable  Jul 7, 2006
This volume is the first of two that will replace the prior Anchor Bible volume, Proverbs and Ecclesiastes, by R.B.Y. Scott, now more than forty years old. Much has been found, read, and discussed since then, making the new volume necessary and welcome.

The greatest strength of the book is Fox's ability to place Proverbs in the extraordinarily rich wisdom tradition of the ancient world, with particular attention to surviving texts from Egypt, Mesopotamia, and the Dead Sea. No less important is his attention to the differing transmissions of Proverbs through different scriptural traditions. Like the best of the Anchor volumes, the notes delve deeply into the details, constantly paying close attention to the Hebrew, with reference to the Talmud, to elucidate words, syntax, and symbolism.

Fox goes beyond merely recording parallels with other texts and commentaries of prior scholars: he weighs them, disputes them, and advances his own conclusions.

This new volume encourages me to think that the Anchor Bible will continue to grow and improve.
