    King James Bible - Proverbs 18:2

    A fool hath no delight in understanding, but that his heart may discover itself.

    World English Bible

    A fool has no delight in understanding, but only in revealing his own opinion.

    Douay-Rheims - Proverbs 18:2

    A fool receiveth not the
    words of prudence: unless thou say those things which are in his heart.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    A fool hath no delight in understanding, but that his
    heart may reveal itself.

    Original Hebrew

    לא
    3808 יחפץ 2654 כסיל 3684 בתבונה 8394 כי 3588 אם 518 בהתגלות 1540 לבו׃ 3820

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 18:2

    ¶ No toma placer el loco en la inteligencia, sino en lo que descubre su corazón.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 18:2

    Verse 2. But that his
    heart may discover itself. ] It is a fact that most vain and foolish people are never satisfied in company, but in showing their own nonsense and emptiness. But this verse may be understood as confirming the view already given of the preceding, and may be translated thus: "But a fool doth not delight in understanding, though it should even manifest itself:" so I understand twlgthb µa yk ki im behithgalloth.

    The separated person seeks understanding in every hidden thing, and feels his toil well repaid when he finds it, even after the most painful and expensive search: the other regards it not, though its secret springs should be laid open to him without toil or expense.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 2. A fool hath no delight in understanding , etc.] In natural understanding, and in the improvement of his mind in it; he delights not in books, nor in the conversation of men of learning and sense: or in spiritual understanding, in the understanding of spiritual things; these are foolishness to a natural man; nor does he delight in reading the Scriptures, nor in hearing the word, and attendance on it in the house of God, but is weary of such exercises; but that his heart may discover itself ; and the folly that is in it: such men only desire to have some knowledge and understanding, to make a show of it, that they may be thought to be wise, and to be capable of talking of things as if they understood them, when it is only to the exposing of themselves and their ignorance; some persons attain to no more learning and knowledge than just to be capable to show that they are fools. Or, “but in the discovery of his heart” f516 ; he delights in discovering that; not the wisdom, but the folly that is in it.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 2 - Those make nothing to purpose, of
    learning or religion, whose onl design is to have something to make a show with.
