Packer on the Wisdom Literature of the Bible

“Of the five Wisdom books of the Old Testament, it has been classically said (I think by Oswald Chambers though I cannot find the reference) that the Psalms will teach you how to pray, Proverbs how to live, Job how to suffer, the Song of Solomon how to love, and Ecclesiastes how to enjoy” (Truth & Power: The Place of Scripture in the Christian Life, 204).

Ezra
