    The authorship of 2 Samuel and 2 Kings is unknown, except that, in their present form, they were the work of somebody who belonged to the deuteronomistic "school".

    2 Corinthians is almost universally agreed to be genuinely Pauline.

    2 kings is an official court record so probably a scribe in the royal palace court.

    2 samuel is probably the same type of thing, a scribe in the royal court to have access to historical records

    2 corinthians by apostle Paul

    all the writings under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit
