King Solomon, who was the tenth son of King David and the second son of Bathsheba, was responsible for writing most of the Proverbs. They are often referred to as the “Proverbs of Solomon” as he accounts for possibly 29 of the 31 chapters. The other two chapters were authored by Agur and King Lemuel, respectively. Solomon reigned during what many refer to as Israel’s “Golden Age.” He was known for his wisdom, as we feel the power of as we read, as well as his accomplished record of buildings and other writings. His span of leadership lasted some 40 years, like Kings David and Saul before him. This lengthy range and history of prosperity during this time is a shining reflection on the type of leader he was.

Scriptures point to Solomon carrying out the Godly work of King David. 1 Kings 2-4 accounts for the charge David gave to Solomon before his death: “I am about to go the way of all the earth,” he said. “So be strong, act like a man, and observe what the LORD your God requires: Walk in obedience to him, and keep his decrees and commands, his laws and regulations, as written in the Law of Moses. Do this so that you may prosper in all you do and wherever you go and that the LORD may keep his promise to me: ‘If your descendants watch how they live, and if they walk faithfully before me with all their heart and soul, you will never fail to have a successor on the throne of Israel.’” A 40-year-reign and the Book of Proverbs later, we can see that Solomon took this charge seriously.
