  1. Actually, three books are attributed to King Solomon: Proverbs, Song of Songs, and Ecclesiastes.

    Proverbs begins with the words “The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel.”

    Song of Songs begins with “The Song of Songs, which is Solomon’s.”

    Ecclesiastes begins with “The words of Koheleth son of David, king in Jerusalem.” Koheleth is King Solomon.
