The people of Israel understood that God would speak to them through a variety of means. They expected to hear from God as their priests taught and interpreted the law of Moses, and their prophets brought the word of the Lord to warn and exhort them. But they also recognised that God would speak to them through the lessons of every day experience. These lessons were captured in compact, memorable sayings, or proverbs, passed down from the wisest among their elders. Thus a collection of such sayings is to be found among Israel’s sacred books. We know it today as the book of proverbs.
