(Masters Thesis) This work examines the exchange of wisdom between ancient Egypt and Israel, in light of the literary relationship between the Instruction of Amenemope and the "Sayings of the Wise" in Proverbs. Research has been conducted on Egyptian and Israelite scribal schools, and the use of common instructional materials within these academies. The two possible avenues for the exchange of wisdom are through scribes serving as international messengers, and the adoption of literature and texts through elite emulation.
