Abstract

With Proverbs 29:14 as a textual case, the article discusses how three African Old Testament scholars—Philippe Dinzolele Nzambi, Lechion Peter Kimilike, and Dorothy BEA Akoto-Abutiate—allow examples from the African proverbial heritage to serve as interpretive resources in their interpretation of texts and motifs from the book of Proverbs.
