The Wisdom of Solomon

An exhortation to follow the wisdom of God, who will give immortality to the righteous.

This book contains a series of didactic exhortations, commendations of wisdom, and promises of immortality. The book urges people to hold fast to the wisdom that leads to righteousness, even if it leads to suffering, since God will give the righteous immortality. The central part of the book speaks of the attributes of wisdom. The final chapters contrast the treatment of the Egyptians who suffered plagues and the Israelites who were delivered from bondage by the wisdom of God. The book is ascribed to Solomon, but was actually written around the time of Christ.
