Wisdom
literature is a genre of literature common in the ancient Near East. It consists of statements by sages and wise men that offer teachings about divinity and virtue. Although this genre uses techniques of traditional oral story-telling, it was disseminated in written form. The literary genre of mirrors for princes, which has a long history in Islamic and Western Renaissance literature, is a secular cognate of wisdom literature. In Classical Antiquity, the didactic poetry of Hesiod, particularly his Works and Days, was regarded as a source of knowledge similar to the wisdom literature of Egypt, Babylonia, and Israel.Contents1 Ancient Egyptian literature 2 Biblical wisdom literature and Jewish texts2.1 Sapiential Books2.1.1 Septuagint3 Classical texts 4 See also 5 Notes and references 6 BibliographyAncient Egyptian literature[edit] Main article: Ancient Egyptian philosophyThis section needs expansion.

Book Of Ruth
The Book of Ruth
The Book of Ruth
(Hebrew: מגילת רות‎, Ashkenazi pronunciation: [məˈɡɪləs rus], Megilath Ruth, "the Scroll of Ruth", one of the Five Megillot) is included in the third division, or the Writings (Ketuvim), of the Hebrew Bible; in most Christian canons it is treated as a history book and placed between Judges and 1 Samuel,[1] as it is set "in the days when the judges judged",[2] although the Syriac Christian tradition places it later, between Ecclesiastes
Ecclesiastes
and the Song of Songs. It is named after its central figure, Ruth the Moabitess, the great-grandmother of David. The book tells of Ruth's accepting the God of the Israelites as her God and the Israelite people as her own. In Ruth 1:16–17, Ruth tells Naomi, her Israelite mother-in-law, "Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried
