SEV Biblia, Chapter 17:10 Â¶ Aprovecha la reprensión en el entendido, más que cien azotes en el loco.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 17:10 Verse 10. A reproof entereth more ] Though the rod, judiciously applied, is a great instrument of knowledge, yet it is of no use where incurable dulness or want of intellect, prevails. Besides, there are generous dispositions on which counsel will work more than stripes.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 10. A reproof entereth more into a wise man , etc.] A single verbal reproof, gently, kindly, and prudently given, not only enters the ear, but the heart of a wise and understanding man; it descends into him, as the word signifies; it sinks deep into his mind; it penetrates into his heart, and pierces his conscience; brings him easily to humiliation, confession, and reformation. Or, “reproof is more terror to a wise man”; as Jarchi interprets it, and the Tigurine version; it awes and terrifies him more; a single word has more effect upon him, entering more easily into him, than an hundred stripes into a fool ; or, “than smiting a fool a hundred times” f493 : a word to a wise man is more than a hundred blows to a fool, will sooner correct and amend him; a word will enter where a blow will not; stripes only reach the back, but not the heart of a fool; he is never the better for all the corrections given him; his heart is not affected, is not humbled, nor brought to a sense of sin, and acknowledgment of it; nor is he in the least reformed: or a single reproof to a wise man is of more service than a hundred reproofs to a fool; which are sometimes expressed by smiting, “let the righteous smite me”, etc. ( <19E105> Psalm 141:5).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 10 - A gentle reproof will enter, not only into the head, but into the hear of a wise man.
