  • It's more than likely a few of these refer to books found in Scripture under later names. For example, Solomon traditionally wrote Proverbs etc. before this book, and so 'all that Solomon did is written in the acts of Solomon' could refer to a scroll containing all his books, for example. Just throwing that out there. Jul 10 at 20:48
