SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:1 ¬∂ Hijo mío, si tomares mis palabras, y mis mandamientos guardares dentro de ti,
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 2:1 Verse 1. My son ] Here the tutor still continues to instruct his disciple.
Hide my commandments with theel Treasure them up in thy heart, and then act from them through the medium of thy affections. He who has the rule of his duty only in his Bible and in his head, is not likely to be a steady, consistent character; his heart is not engaged, and his obedience, in any case, can be only forced, or done from a sense of duty: it is not the obedience of a loving, dutiful child, to an affectionate father. But he who has the word of God in his heart, works from his heart; his heart goes with him in all things, and he delights to do the will of his heavenly Father, because his law is in his heart. See chap. iii. 3.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1. My son , etc.] These are either the continuation of the words of Solomon to his son Rehoboam; or to anyone that came to him for instruction, or was within the reach of being taught by him; whom he addresses in this tender and affectionate manner, in order to gain his attention to what he was about to say: or else they are the words of Wisdom, or Christ, continued, thus bespeaking: his children and people; and giving them some very wholesome counsel and advice, backed with the most powerful and prevailing arguments; if thou wilt receive my words ; or doctrines: the doctrines of the Gospel, relating to the person, office, and grace of Christ, and salvation by him; such as the words of peace, pardon, righteousness, and life; which are to be received, not as the word of man, but as the word of God; and with all readiness of mind and willingness, as they were by the Bereans; and most gladly, as by the three thousand pricked to the heart under Peterís sermon; and as they are and will be by every sensible sinner; and hide my commandments with thee ; in the heart; so as to have a high esteem of them, and a hearty affection and value for them; retain them in memory, and frequently think of them and meditate upon them, and constantly observe them; (see <19B911> Psalm 119:11,127,128).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-9 - Those who earnestly seek heavenly wisdom, will never complain that the have lost their labour; and the freeness of the gift does not do awa the necessity of our diligence, Joh 6:27 Let them seek, and they shal find it; let them ask, and it shall be given them. Observe who are thu favoured. They are the righteous, on whom the image of God is renewed which consists in righteousness. If we depend upon God, and seek to his for wisdom, he will enable us to keep the paths of judgment.
