    So far I only cite 53 sources from Ancient Egyptian writings that were culled to create the biblical text. Here is a review of one of those sources (eg. you will note that this source is 4th from the bottom of the list.)

    The Teaching of Amenemope and Proverbs 22:17 and 25:22: Further Reflections on a Long-Standing Problem

    J. A. Emerton
    Vetus Testamentum
    Vol 51, Fasc 4 (Oct, 2001)
    pages 431-465
    Published by Brill

    click here "...Adolf Erman argued in 1924 that Proverbs 22:17 is dependent on an Egyptian sapiential work, the Teachings of Amenemope. Since then, it has been widely--though never universally--agreed that this part of the book of Proverbs or in the opinion of many, the whole of 22:17-25:22, has been influenced by this Egyptian source.
