The books of the Bible usually described as "poetical" and "wisdom" books include Psalms, Song of Songs, Job, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Sirach, and Wisdom. Although poetic language is to be found in many Old Testament books, it is the predominant form in book of Psalms and the Song of Songs (or Song of Solomon). The books of Job and Ecclesiastes (Hebrew: Qohelet) were favourite works of medieval philosophers, who took them as philosophical discussions not dependent on historical revelation. The book of Proverbs introduces, in an apparently theological context, the concept of Wisdom (Ḥokhma), which was to have a primordial significance for Jewish.
Proverbs, Theology of. Proverb's theology consists of five aspects: (1) God has immutably structured both the cosmos and society; (2) God has revealed the social structure through this book; (3) the social structure consists of a nexus uniting deed and destiny; (4) adherence to the Lord's ordained structure is a matter of the heart; and (5) words are powerfully effective in shaping young hearts. 2.

The Book of Job, named after its protagonist (apparently not an Israelite; cf. Ez , 20), is an exquisite dramatic treatment of the problem of the suffering of the innocent. The contents of the book, together with its artistic structure and elegant style, place it among the literary masterpieces of all time. The Bible has never been without controversy. That is because it speaks on the deep issues of life that we are all acquainted with intimately. We all have our own personal way of dealing with these issues—often to our detriment. Concluding this series on Wisdom, Dr. Sproul shows us how the books of Ecclesiastes, Job, and the Song of Solomon provide the wisdom to help us endure and respond to.
