That would be a tall order to fill Sharmine - to give a full explanation of Proverbs chapters 1 & 2. But I'll share an outline for you that might be a little useful.

Proverbs 1:1. Clearly, King Solomon is the major Author/contributor. And the meaning of Proverbs: these are the sayings taken from everyday life & intended to serve as practical guidelines for 'successful' living.

Proverbs 1:2-6. Its Purpose is that the reader might know wisdom & allow it to govern his/her life.

Proverbs 1:7. The Theme of the book is that the fear (deep reverence) of the LORD is the starting point and essence of wisdom (and Wisdom is the correct application of knowledge that comes through a right relationship with God).

Proverbs 1:8 to Proverbs 9:18. Show the Precepts of Wisdom (rules to be followed).

a. 1:8-19 (avoid bad company).

b. 1:20-33 (to heed Wisdom's advice; wisdom personified as a woman inviting all to come to her & learn).

c. 2:1-22 (the master teacher describes the joyful results of pursuing & acquiring Wisdom: Wisdom is God-given (vv6,7) & is beneficial as it delivers one from the ways of evil men (vv10-15), from the arms of the adulteress (vv 16-19), and preserves one's life & character (vv 20-22).

Hopefully, this broad outline will help you read & learn these chapters' contents & the reason for their writing.
