Show Summary Details


This chapter summarizes the preceding discussions and presents some concluding thoughts from the author. It argues that Israelite literature might make elevating reading for adults or children, but would be of little use in training them either for a profession or way of life. There is no evidence to suggest that it was ever more functionally orientated.

Keywords: early wisdom literature; Israel; Israelite literature
