SEV Biblia, Chapter 15:27 Â¶ Alborota su casa el codicioso; mas el que aborrece las dádivas vivirá.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 15:27 Verse 27. He that is greedy of gain ] He who will be rich; troubleth his own house-he is a torment to himself and his family by his avariciousness and penury, and a curse to those with whom he deals.
But he that hateth gifts ] Whatever is given to pervert judgment.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 27. He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house , etc.] Or “that covets a covetousness” f453 , an evil one, as in ( Habakkuk 2:9); that seeks riches by unlawful means, that gathers the mammon of falsehood, or unrighteousness, as the Targum; he entails a curse and brings ruin and destruction upon his family; the Septuagint and Arabic versions are, he “destroys himself”; or “his own soul”, as the Syriac version; it may be understood of a man that is over anxious and eager to be rich, and hurries on business, and gives his servants no proper time for food and rest; (see Gill on “ Proverbs 11:29”); but he that hateth gifts shall live ; that rejects them with abhorrence, when offered to bribe him to pervert judgment, or to do an unjust thing; otherwise gifts may be lawfully received from one friend by another; the sin is when they are given and taken for the sake of doing what is base and sinful; and a man that shakes his hand from receiving gifts on such a basis, he and his family shall prosper and increase in worldly things; and, doing this from a right principle of grace, shall live comfortably in a spiritual sense, and thrive and flourish in his soul, and live an eternal life hereafter; (see Psalm 16:5,6).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 27 - The covetous man lets none of his family have rest or enjoyment. An greediness of gain often tempts to projects that bring ruin.
