New Defender's Study Bible Notes
10:2 delivereth from death. The second section of Proverbs, called “the proverbs of Solomon,” extends from Proverbs 10:1–22:17, where a new section attributed to “the words of the wise” begins. The collected “proverbs of Solomon” each stand independently, with no continuity from verse to verse. The earlier section, however (Proverbs 1:1–9:18), and also the section from Proverbs 22:17–24:34, attributed to “the wise” (Proverbs 24:23), do exhibit such continuity.
