    The book of Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and Song of Solomon were all written by Solomon.   He most likely gathered wise sayings along with his own.  He is credited with the authorship since he wrote 3,000 proverbs., but we have only nine hundred and seventeen proverbs in this book.   In proverbs we learn about the three kinds of parallelism and pointed out.  Synonymous parallelism , the second clause restates what is given in the first clause.  Contrast parallelism, a truths stated in the first clause is made stronger in the second clause by contrast with an opposite truth.  Synthetic parallelism, the second clause develops the thought of the first.  The book of Ecclesiastes is God’s record of man’s argument about life.   Here Solomon calls himself “The Preacher”.  The central message the emptiness of everything apart from God.   “Love not the world neither the things that are in the world.  for all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world” The book of the song of Solomon is a love poem.   The Jews called it the Holy of Holies of Scripture. The structure of the book is based on Initial Love, Faltering Love, Growing Love, Transforming Love and Mature Love.  This book with Psalms 45, teaches us what Paul teaches in 2 Corinthians 11:1-2.
