“Wisdom Literature” refers to the books of Job, some of the Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, the Song of Songs (Song of Solomon), and perhaps a few others. These writings reflect on universal human concerns and the maintenance of ordered lives that lead to divine approval. Interestingly, not all the wisdom books agree in their outlook. These books are at times witty, provocative, passionate, challenging, and satisfying.
