2 Chron. 21:12; Isa. 30:8; Jer. 25:13; 29:1; 30:2; 36:2; 51:60; Ezek. 43:11; Dan. 7:1 Hab. 2:2). AN EXPLANATION OF BOOKS THAT LACK EXPLICIT CLAIM FOR INSPIRATION The vast majority of the books of the Old Testament (about twenty-six of thirty-nine) explicitly claim that they are God’s words to men, but some do not have such clear statements as to their origin. Several reasons may be offered in the clarification of this important matter.

A similar command was given to Habakkuk: “Record the vision and inscribe it on tablets, that the one who reads it may run” (Hab. 2:2). There can be little doubt, then, that the prophets did write, and what they wrote was the Word of God just as much as what they spoke was the Word of God. That being the case, it remains only to discover whether the Old Testament was the work of the prophets in order to establish it, in its entirety, as the Word of God.

Poetry is what God said in the hearts and aspirations of individuals within the nation. Both are what God said, just as much so as the explicit record He spoke through the law and the other didactic writings. Traditional writers of the books were men accredited of God with prophetic ministries Solomon, who is credited by Jewish tradition with writing Song of Solomon, Proverbs, and Ecclesiastes, had God-given wisdom (1 Kings 4:29).
