. Psalm 1 is a wisdom psalm and is called a "Wisdom Introduction". This contrast between the good and the wicked is a wisdom motif. It was probably purposely written as the first psalm of the psalter. The tree planted by water is an image of the Tree of Life in Eden. The use of the word "congregation" is an assembly of people in the temple. There was a mystical relationship between the people in the temple and the nation. The people were a mystical representation of the whole kingdom. The worshipping body that represents the kingdom is what a church is. Jesus said he would build his Church on Peter. Jesus was not the first Church builder. The Essenes lived in a perpetual state of worship (this is the reason why they practiced celibacy) and awaited the Messiah. Although they did not recognize the Messiah when he came, they anticipated many features of the Church.

Marital theme and Davidic covenant sonship
Wisdom has setup her 7 pillars = covenantal
Wisdom as wife, Us referred to as a son
wisdom is conventional. it flows out of David covenant as way they are supposed to live. Wisdom literature is the divine instruction for the people of Israel.
3 ways wisdom is covenantal (literary indications):
1.) The address of the reader as son puts the reader in covenantal relationship with Solomon, heir of the davidic cocenant, and this in a mediated covenantal relationship with God. Each chapter for the first 7 begins with son
2.) the sevenfold structure of the book points to the covenantal nature of wisdom. 7 is covenant #. Through divine wisdom you enter into covenant (marital covenant). Thought to be a description of ideal ancient Israel wife and a personification of wisdom itself (proverbs 3:15 and 8:11 = women more desirable than jewels). moral sense of text = morals we should live by. allegorical sense = wisdom is God's spirit and blessed mother.
-sevenfold structure of book in notes.
3.) the use of wife as an icn of wisdom points to a covenantal (nuptial) relationship with wisdom/truth. Proverbs 1-9 = heavy nuptial theme; wisdom is protrayed as most desirable wife and ideal wife (moral and allegorical); son is urged to marital fidelity.
Although there is not much explicit mention of the "covenant" in Proverbs, there are several implicit indications in the book that wisdom is a covenantal concept and reality. What are these?
flows from davidic covenant. solomon is son of david. book of proverbs is the beginning of the form of instruction associated with the davidic covenant (wisdom associated with davidic covenant)
