John Dummelow's Commentary on the Bible - Proverbs 24:1-34

5. Read, ’A wise man is better than a warrior, and a man of knowledge than a man of strength.’7. When put on his trial ’in the gate’ of the city, where public business was usually transacted, he has nothing to say (Matthew 22:12). 10. Adversity is sent to bring out your strength: if you are slack and irresolute in the day of trial you are proved to be a weakling. 11, 12. Do not seek to evade your responsibilities (Genesis 4:9; James 4:17). 13, 14. Wisdom is as sweet as honey.16-18. Seven] an... read more

Wisdom the Builder Proverbs 24:3-4 Men everywhere are engaged in house-building. Some in dreamy castle-building; some in material fortune-building; all in inward character-building, building up, each one of them, the history of a life, the destiny of an eternity. I. To begin at the bottom of the scale, let us glance at that kind of building which with so many people is the first and chief concern of life the building up of their material fortunes. While heavenly wisdom will not permit us to... read more

Arno Gaebelein's Annotated Bible - Proverbs 24:1-34

CHAPTER 24 Instructions Continued In the final instructions of this chapter we find first a description of the evil men. Their heart studieth destruction; their lips talk mischief. This theme is repeatedly referred to in this chapter. In Proverbs 24:15 the evil man is addressed not to lay wait for the righteous and not to spoil his resting place. The Lord takes care of the righteous; he may be overcome by misfortunes seven times, yet will he rise again. Different it is with the wicked when he... read more

The People's Bible by Joseph Parker - Proverbs 24:21-29

Intellectual Conflict, Etc. Pro 24:21-29 It has been suggested that we should read for "them that are given to change," "those who think differently." Here the caution is not directed against variety of intellectual method, but against variety of moral judgment. Thus we have been reading that there shall be no reward to the evil man, and that the candle of the wicked shall be put out; and now the wise father would seem to say to his son, If any man shall teach thee any other doctrine than... read more

Robert Hawker

Hawker's Poor Man's Commentary - Proverbs 24:19-26

Fret not thyself because of evil men, neither be thou envious at the wicked; For there shall be no reward to the evil man; the candle of the wicked shall be put out. My son, fear thou the LORD and the king: and meddle not with them that are given to change: For their calamity shall rise suddenly; and who knoweth the ruin of them both? These things also belong to the wise. It is not good to have respect of persons in judgment. He that saith unto the wicked, Thou art righteous; him shall the... read more
