    King James Bible - Proverbs 18:1

    Through desire a man, having separated himself, seeketh and intermeddleth with all wisdom.

    World English Bible

    An unfriendly man pursues selfishness, and defies all
    sound judgment.

    Douay-Rheims - Proverbs 18:1

    He that hath a mind to depart from a friend seeketh occasions: he shall ever be subject to reproach.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    Through desire a man, having separated himself, seeketh and intermeddleth with all wisdom.

    Original Hebrew

    8378 יבקשׁ 1245 נפרד 6504 בכל 3605 תושׁיה 8454 יתגלע׃ 1566

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 18:1

    ¶ Segun su antojo busca el que se desvía; en toda doctrina se envolver.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 18:1

    Verse 1. Through desire a man, having separated himself ] The original is difficult and obscure. The Vulgate, Septuagint, and Arabic, read as follows: "He who wishes to
    break with his friend, and seeks occasions or pretenses shall at all times be worthy of blame." My old MS. Bible translates, "Occasioun seeketh that wil go awei fro a freend: at al tyme he schal ben wariable".

    Coverdale thus: "Who so hath pleasure to sowe discorde, piketh a quarrel in every thinge." Bible by Barker, 1615: "Fro the desire thereof he will separate himself to seeke it, and occupie himself in all wisdome." Which has in the margin the following note: "He that loveth wisdom will separate himself from all impediments, and give himself wholly to seek it." The Hebrew: [lgty hywt lkb drpn qby hwatl lethaavah yebakkesh niphrad, bechol tushiyah yithgalla. The nearest translation to the words is perhaps the following: "He who is separated shall seek the desired thing, (i.e., the object of his desire,) and shall intermeddle (mingle himself) with all realities or all essential knowledge." He finds that he can make little progress in the investigation of Divine and natural things, if he have much to do with secular or trifliing matters: he therefore separates himself as well from unprofitable pursuits as from frivolous company, and then enters into the spirit of his pursuit; is not satisfied with superficial observances, but examines the substance and essence, as far as possible, of those things which have been the objects of his desire. This appears to me the best meaning: the reader may judge for himself.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1 - If we would get knowledge and grace, we must try all methods of improving ourselves.
