Much of the book of Proverbs is attributed to Solomon. His request for wisdom was granted by God however the conclusion of his life presents a man who was not ultimately wise. While Solomon possessed wisdom and studied wisdom he failed to truly embrace wisdom. Wisdom is portrayed in his writings as a person rather than a set of principles. Solomon ultimately chose the embrace of many wives over the embrace of wisdom.
