Wisdom Books (Job through Sirach)

Psalms, Proverbs, Wisdom and Sirach contain many sayings of practical wisdom to help live a happy, successful, and holy life. Job and Ecclesiastes deal with the weightier issues of the meaning of life, the existence of evil and our relationship to God. Song of Solomon is a love song glorifying romantic love between a man and woman, although it is sometimes interpreted allegorically as a story about the love of God for Israel or the Church.
