    He that is void of wisdom despiseth his neighbour: but a man of understanding holdeth his peace.

    One who despises his neighbor is void of wisdom, but a man of understanding holds his peace.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 11:12

    ¶ El que carece de entendimiento, menosprecia a su prójimo; mas el hombre prudente calla.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 11:12

    Verse 12. He that is
    void of wisdom ] A foolish man is generally abundant in his censures; he dwells on the defects of his neighbour, and is sure to bring them into the most prominent view. But a man of understanding-a prudent, sensible man, hides those defects wherever he can, and puts the most charitable construction on those which he cannot conceal.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 12. He that is
    void of wisdom despiseth his neighbour , etc.] Not only in his heart, but by giving him opprobrious language; he speaks contemptibly of him, either because he thinks he is wiser than his neighbour, and therefore calls him fool at every turn; as those who are most destitute of wisdom conceit they have the largest share of it, and despise others; or else because he is richer than his neighbour, as the poor is generally despised by the rich; or because he fancies he is holier than he, as the Pharisee who trusts in himself that he is righteous, and despises others: or a man “that wants a heart” f299 , as it may be rendered; that wants a good one, or wants grace in his heart; he despises the counsel and advice, the admonitions and instructions, which his neighbour gives him for his good; but a man of understanding holdeth his peace : and will not despise his neighbour, or give him ill language, because he is not so wise, or so rich, or so righteous as he; if he cannot speak any good of him, he will not speak evil of him; or he holds his peace, is silent, and will not answer the man void of wisdom, that despises and reproaches him; he will not render railing for railing; when he is reviled he will revile not again; and by so doing he shows himself to he a man understanding, or of intellects; a wise and prudent.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 12 - A man of understanding does not
    judge of others by their success.
