Chapter Summary

Philo quotes six verses from the Book of Proverbs in four different passages, and in addition to this, he has a single reference to the Book of Job. With the exception of the Book of Psalms, there are no other citations from the books of the writings in Philo’s work. Four of the six citations from the Book of Proverbs appear in a single Philonic book, III Ebr. One of these is found in 31 and the other three in 84. In order to understand their place in the Philonic text, this chapter discusses these passages within the frame of reference in which they appear. The only remaining Philonic citation from non-pentateuchal scripture is a single reference to Job, the allusion to Job 14:4–5 in V Mut. 48.
