    Proverbs 18 - Proverbs 20 >> - HELP - FACEBOOK - GR FORUMS - GODRULES ON YOUTUBE    




    Verse 2. Hasteth - That rashly and headily rushes into actions.

    Verse 3. Perverteth - Blasts his designs and enterprises. Fretteth - He ascribes his unhappiness not to his own sin, but to God and his providence.

    Verse 6. A friend - in profession.

    Verse 7. Brethren - His nearest relations. Hate - Despise and shun him. Pursueth - Earnestly imploring their pity.

    Verse 10. Delight - To live in pleasure and outward glory, doth not become him, nor suit with him; because prosperity corrupts even wise men, and makes fools mad; and because it gives him more opportunity to discover his folly, and to do mischief both to himself and others.

    Verse 13. Dropping - Are like rain continually dropping upon an house.

    Verse 15. Casteth - Makes a man careless, and like one asleep in his business.

    Verse 16. His ways - The commands of God.

    Verse 18. While - Before custom in sin, and thy indulgence have made him incorrigible. Let not - Forbear not to give him due and necessary correction.

    Verse 19. Great wrath - Of strong passions. Deliver - If thou forbear to punish him. Do it - Thou must deliver him again and again.

    Verse 22. The desire - The hearty desire of being kind is accepted by God, and should be owned by men as a real kindness. A poor man - Who is not able to give what he desires to do. A liar - Than a rich man who feeds the poor with fair promises, but doth not perform what he pretends.

    Verse 23. Satisfied - Shall be fully contented with God's favour and blessing.

    Verse 24. Bring it - To feed himself; he expects that the meat should drop into his mouth.

    Verse 25. Scorner - An obstinate and impudent transgressor. Simple - Who sin thro' ignorance, being possibly drawn to it by the scorner's evil counsel or example. Reprove - A verbal reproof will be more effectual for his reformation, than the severest punishments will be to a scorner.

    Verse 26. Wasteth - His father's estate. Chaseth - Causes her to avoid his presence, and to go from the house where he is.

    Verse 28. Scorneth - Hath no reverence to the place of justice, nor to the presence of God there. Devoureth - Utters it with greediness and delight.

    Verse 29. Prepared - Although they be deferred for a time, yet they are treasured up for them.
