A few years ago, while working as a Bible-Teacher in Pakistan, I was studying the Hebrew text of the book of Proverbs. I realized that it is possible to discern groups of verses belonging together by repetition of certain words or subjects. I got the impression that groups of four verses up to 24 verses belonged together in sections. From the 37 groups I found in Proverbs 10,1-22,16 most often I got groups of six verses (nine times), the runner-up being groups of nine verses (seven times). Here is a pdf-file handout for proverbs with the verses of the sections. The pages six to twenty of the file show the Hebrew text with certain words colored to show the connections within the sections. Proverbs-Handout .
