The Salmos is a book of special characteristics, even so integrated in this set. When analyzing the set of the Sapienciais Books of at, verifies a formal difference, that will finish for leading to a particularizao in the proper content. One is about the distinction between the proverbial wisdom and it treats it dstica or intellectual. The first one states, in brief phrases, universal or conditional truths for determined situations.
