About This Text
Composed: Talmudic Israel/Babylon, c.750 - c.850 CE
Midrash Mishlei is a medieval midrash on the Book of Proverbs. Its style is simple, with brief verse-by-verse commentary rarely found in earlier midrashim but common in later biblical interpretations. The exact time and place of composition are subject to debate. The work has not been preserved entirely, with some chapters missing sections.
