It will be the burden of this treatise to establish the fact that in the eighth chapter of the Book of Proverbs we have a direct reference to Jesus Christ, the Son of God. This we shall do on the basis of six Hebrew expressions which occur in verses 22 to 31. Then we shall consider the appropriateness of the term תכהת, as well as related terms, as ascribed to the Son of God. Finally, we shall consider the Personal Wisdom as our comfort in life and in death.
