“Wisdom is the major theme in the book of Proverbs.”
The wisdom taught in Proverbs is not some kind of general human knowledge gained by way of human contemplation and reflection on the facts of life, but knowledge concerning God and his way that is ultimately communicated to humanity by God himself through torah.
The book of Proverbs teaches that God used wisdom in creating the world (Prov 3:19–20).
