The Book of wisdom is one of the Old Testament books of the Bible and is classified with a number of other books that have the main purpose of instruction . The author, although many times wrongly attributed to Solomon, was an Alexandrian Jew who was attempting to strengthen the religious commitment of the Hellenistic Jewish community and, if possible, to convert the Gentiles.

The Book Of Wisdom has three main parts: chapters 1 - 5 stress the superiority of the pious and wise over the godless; chapters 6 - 9 praise personified Wisdom; and chapters 10 - 19 illustrate the marvels of Wisdom.

First off, it isn't exactly from the Holy Bible as it is an apocryphal text, IE accepted as Canonical by some Christians and not others. I recommend looking that up for context. The book is certainly profound and interesting. It touches on themes like the meaning of life, the roll of wisdom in one's life, what wisdom is, what it's good for, where it can be found, etc. It might seem boring to some unless you think about it and debate with text a bit, then the real meaning comes out. There is a lot to chew on and one listen will probably not be enough, as it usually is for decent religious texts of just about any stripe. The reader has good diction.

I think the Bible the books of wisdom, are very understanding for those who need guidance. Their are some who hear these wise words and hear and obey, some are senseless and not understand. For today, "Here or Kings, Presidents, and all others, learn the laws and use wisdom, and don't oppress the lesser man."
