The Instructions of Shuruppak is one of the oldest known pieces of writing in existence, dating back to around 2,800 BCE. It's a compiled book of proverbs supposedly all said by King Shuruppak. So-called "books of wisdom" were very popular in the ancient Middle East, and several were added to various holy book compilations like the Tanakh and Koran.
