Abstract: Biblical proverbs form an important part of the proverb stock of a language. This essay examines what kind of problems arise when analyzing biblical proverbs. It has to be emphasized that there is an important difference between biblical quotations and proverbs. The study of the features and the formation of these proverbs is followed by a contrastive German-Hungarian analysis. According to the study, there are more biblical proverbs in German than in Hungarian. Most of them are full equivalents but a lot of Hungarian proverbs show partial equivalence: they use different lexical or syntactic structures.
