The aim of this paper is to give guidelines for preaching on the wisdom literature of the Old Testament, concentrating on the book of Proverbs. As background for the guidelines, wisdom and wisdom literature are defined and attention is given to the forms of wisdom literature, problems regarding the preaching on wisdom literature and relevant information on the book of Proverbs. In many circles Proverbs is largely ignored in preaching to the detriment of the church's preaching. Preaching on wisdom forces the preacher to apply the guidelines practically and to touch on the daily life of the members of his congregation. Twelve guidelines are given and they are applied to three examples from Proverbs.
