    1 Observations about fools; 13 about sluggards; 17 and about contentious busy-bodies. VERSE 1 - in summer. * 1Sa 12:17,18 - so. * :3; 28:16 Jud 9:7,20,56,57 Es 3:1-15; 4:6,9 Ps 12:8; 15:4 * Ps 52:1 *title * Ec 10:5-7 VERSE 2 - so. * Nu 23:8 De 23:4,5 1Sa 14:28,29; 17:43 2Sa 16:12 Ne 13:2 * Ps 109:28 VERSE 3 According to our notions, we should rather say, a bridle for the horse, and a whip for the ass; but it should be considered, that the Eastern asses are not only much more beautiful, but better goers that ours; and being active and well broken, they need only a bridle to guide them; whereas their horses being scarce, and often caught wild, and badly broken, are much less manageable, and need the correction of the whip. * Pr 10:13; 17:10; 19:25; 27:22 Jud 8:5-7 Ps 32:9 1Co 4:21 2Co 10:6 * 2Co 13:2 VERSE 4 * Pr 17:14 Jud 12:1-6 2Sa 19:41-43 1Ki 12:14,16 2Ki 14:8-10 * 1Pe 2:21-23; 3:9 Jude 1:9 VERSE 5 - a fool. * 1Ki 22:24-28 Jer 36:17,18 Mt 15:1-3; 16:1-4; 21:23-27; 22:15-32 * Lu 12:13-21; 13:23-30 Joh 8:7; 9:26-33 Tit 1:13 - lest. * :12; 28:11 Ro 11:25 - conceit. Heb. eyes. * Isa 5:21 Ro 12:16 VERSE 6 - sendeth. * Pr 10:26; 13:17; 25:13 Nu 13:31 - damage. or, violence. VERSE 7 - not equal.

This probably refers, as Coverdale understands it, to the custom of throwing a stone to the heap under which a criminal was buried. So the Vulgate, {Sicut qui mittit lapidem in acervum Mercurii; ita qui tribuit insipienti honorem,} "As he who throws a stone to Mercury's heap, so is he who gives honor to a fool." Mercury was a heathen god of highways; and stones were erected in different parts to guide the traveller: hence those lines of Dr. Young, "Death stands like Mercuries in every way; And kindly points us to our journey's end." - so. * :1; 19:10; 30:22 VERSE 9 * Pr 23:35 VERSE 10 - The great, etc. or, A great man grieveth all; and he hireth the fool, he hireth also the transgressors. - both. * Pr 11:31 Ro 2:6 VERSE 11 - a dog. * Ex 8:15 Mt 12:45 2Pe 2:22 - returneth to his folly.
