Proverbs 7:1 - Exposition

My son, keep my words. The teacher enjoins his pupil, as in Proverbs 2:1 , to observe the rules which he gives. Lay up, as a precious treasure (see on Proverbs 2:1 and Proverbs 2:7 ). The LXX . adds here a distich which is not in the Hebrew or in any other version, and is not germane to the context, however excellent in itself: "My son, honour the Lord, and thou shalt be strong, and beside him feat no other." With this we may compare Luke 12:5 and Isaiah 8:12 , Isaiah 8:13 .
