The Book of Proverbs is commonly divided into three sections:

  1. ch. 1; 9, which contain an exhibition of wisdom as the highest good.
  2. ch. 10; 24, a collection of "the proverbs of Solomon"
  3. ch. 25: 29, another collection of "proverbs of Solomon which the men of Hezekiah king of Judah copied"

These are followed by three supplements

  1. "The words of Agur" (ch. 30); and
  2. "The words to king Lemuel" (ch. 31,1;9).
  3. The praise of the good wife (ch. 31,10;31)
