Concise, original discussion of the meanings of each of the proverbs and their place in their original context, as well as attention to the overall structure of the book. [Full Review]
Clifford is excellent at bringing out the pithiness of individual proverbs and seeing their significance and application. He includes just the right amount of background and technical discussion while focusing on meaning. Also includes good background material and connections to other ANE wisdom literature.
