SEV Biblia, Chapter 16:27 Â¶ El hombre perverso cava en busca del mal; y en sus labios hay como llama de fuego.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 16:27 Verse 27. An ungodly man diggeth up evil ] How will the following suit? Effodiuntur opes irritamenta malorum "Wealth, the incitement to all evil, is digged up out the earth." A wicked man labours as much to bring about an evil purpose, as the quarryman does to dig up stones.
In his lips-a burning fire. ] His words are as inflammable, in producing strife and contention among his neighbours, as fire is in igniting dry stubble.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 27. An ungodly man diggeth up evil , etc.] Or “a man of Belial” f473 , a worthless unprofitable man; a man without a yoke, not obedient to the law of God; such a man digs for sin as for a treasure; nor need he go far for it, he has enough in his own heart, out of the evil treasure of which he brings forth evil things; though he is more solicitious and diligent to search into the sins of others, and dig up them, which have long lain buried; as the Manichees raked up the sins of Austin in his youth; and as the Papists served Beza: but perhaps the evil of mischief is here rather intended, which a wicked man contrives and devises; a ditch he digs for others, though oftentimes he falls into it himself; and so the Septuagint and Arabic versions render it, “digs evils for himself”; not intentionally but eventually; (see Psalm 7:15); and in his lips [there is] as a burning fire ; his tongue is a fire, it is set on fire of hell, and it sets on fire the course of nature; and with its lies, calumnies, and detractions, devours and consumer the good names, characters, and credit of men; and deserves no other than sharp arrows of the Almighty, and coals of juniper; even the everlasting fire and flames of hell, ( James 3:6 Psalm 52:2,4 120:3,4).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 27, 28 - Ungodly men bestow more pains to do mischief than would be needful to do good. The whisperer separates friends: what a hateful, but ho common a character!
