    King James Bible - Proverbs 17:28

    Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.

    World English Bible

    Even a fool, when he keeps silent, is counted wise. When he shuts his lips, he is thought to be discerning.

    Douay-Rheims - Proverbs 17:28

    Even a fool, if he will hold his peace shall be counted wise: and if he close his lips, a man of understanding.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 17:28

    Aun el loco cuando calla, es contado por sabio; el que cierra sus labios es entendido.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 17:28

    Verse 28. Even a
    fool ] He is counted wise as to that particular. He may know that he cannot speak well, and he has sense enough to keep from speaking. He is, as to that particular, a wise fool.

    A man may be golden-mouthed and silver-tongued in eloquence; but to know when and where to speak and to be silent, is better than diamonds.

    But who that thinks he can speak well can refrain from speaking? His tongue has no rest.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 28. Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise , etc.] Not only one that is sparing of his words, and is really a man of knowledge and understanding; but even a feel, if he is but silent, and does not betray his folly by his words, will be reckoned a wise man by those that do not know him; and, whatever fool he may be in other respects, yet in this he acts the wise part, that he holds his peace and says nothing; [and] he that shutteth his lips [is esteemed] a man of understanding ; and keeps them shut, lest he should say anything rashly and hastily; a man that has so much command of himself as not to speak unadvisedly, through the heat of his own passions, and through the provocations of others, will pass for a man that understands himself, and knows how to behave well before others.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 27, 28 - A man may show himself to be a
    wise man, by the good temper of his mind, and by the good government of his tongue. He is careful when he does speak, to speak to the purpose. God knows his heart, and the foll that is bound there; therefore he cannot be deceived in his judgment a men may be __________________________________________________________________
