Exploring Mishlei

כ = הֲלֹא כָתַבְתִּי לְךָ שָׁלִישִׁים בְּמוֹעֵצֹת וָדָעַת

(20) Have I not written it for you three times, with counsel and knowledge?

The text of this proverb may also be understood as a reference to the Book of Proverbs itself, which is organized in three major parts (Chapters 1 through 9, Chapters 10 through 24, and Chapters 25 through 31).
