SEV Biblia, Chapter 17:23 Â¶ El impío toma dádiva en secreto para pervertir las veredas del derecho.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 17:23 Verse 23. A gift out of the bosom ] Out of his purse; as in their bosoms, above their girdles, the Asiatics carry their purses. I have often observed this.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 23. A wicked [man] taketh a gift out of the bosom , etc.] Of another, of a rich man, who takes it out from thence, and offers it to him as a bribe.
This he takes in the most secret manner, that it might not be seen by others; though the Arabic version renders it, “he that receives a gift in his own bosom commits iniquity”; it is true of both the giver and the receiver; the one gives out of his bosom, and the other takes if from thence, and puts it into his own, and both are wicked. And the words are by some rendered, though it seems contrary to the accents, “a gift out of the bosom of the wicked he will take” f506 ; the unjust judge, who is bribed with it: to pervert the ways of judgment ; to turn the course of justice, and hinder it from taking place; favouring a bad cause, and pronouncing a wrong sentence, which is wresting judgment.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 23 - The wicked are ready to part with their money, though loved, that the may not suffer for their crimes.
