Translating proverbs

Translating Proverbs must be difficult since they all seem to stand alone. I wonder what form there is to such a book.  Certainly I could never read it again like I tried the first time about 40 years ago. Speed reading was all the rage. Kurk Gayle has a third post on Proverbs here - not much conversation yet. But three proverbs with textual emendations - not any of them required as far as I can see.
