Proverbs is part of the Wisdom tradition, and as such is a collection of sayings, poems, and "life's little" instructions. Exhorting its readers (hearers) to seek the higher ideals--things like knowledge, discipline, piety, morality, and order--Proverbs offer guidance on how to live in harmony with God, with one's community, and with creation. This section by section commentary divides Proverbs into eight collections, and clarifies the major historical, social, literary, theological and ethical elements of the book.
