Pro 1:1 The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel; (KJV)
One of the issues that must be dealt with is accepting the Word as the Word. We take a simple statement like this and let it slip through our thinking. What would many people feel if I said Solomon did not write all of the Proverbs. Some would rise in righteous indignation. By the time you finish reading through all the Proverbs you will find that there are places where the Word says that other people wrote certain sections. Accept it if it says it. Don’t lay the statements of authorities on top of the Word and let the simple text slide away from you. Did Solomon write this part of Proverbs, yes, because the Bible says so. Did Paul write Hebrews? Did Matthew write the first gospel? We can accept tradition, but beware believing it.
