SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:11 el consejo te guardará, te preservará la inteligencia,
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 2:11 Verse 11. Discretion shall preserve thee ] hmzm mezimmah. See on chap. i. 4. Here the word is taken in a good sense, a good device. The man invents purposes of good; and all his schemes, plans, and devices, have for their object God's glory and the good of man: he deviseth liberal things, and by liberal things he shall stand. Coverdale translates, "Then shall COUNSEL preserve thee." A very good translation, much better than the present.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 11. Discretion shall preserve thee , etc.] Which wisdom or the Gospel gives, or the Lord by the means of it; for the Gospel makes a man wise and discreet in the business of salvation, and in his conduct and deportment; and the discretion it gives him will put him upon his guard, and direct him to watch against every error, and every false way. And so the words may be rendered, “discretion will watch over thee”; to keep thee from everything pernicious in doctrine and practice. The Septuagint version renders it, “good counsel”; which wisdom gives, and the Gospel is full of; and which, if attended to, is a means of the preservation of the saints; understanding shall keep thee ; which is only the same thing expressed in other words. The Septuagint version renders it, “an holy thought”; and the Arabic version, “a just thought shall preserve thee in thy last times”. What these are a means of keeping and preserving from is explained in the following verses.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 10-22 - If we are truly wise, we shall be careful to avoid all evil company an evil practices. When wisdom has dominion over us, then it not onl fills the head, but enters into the heart, and will preserve, bot against corruptions within and temptations without. The ways of sin ar ways of darkness, uncomfortable and unsafe: what fools are those wh leave the plain, pleasant, lightsome paths of uprightness, to walk in such ways! They take pleasure in sin; both in committing it, and i seeing others commit it. Every wise man will shun such company. Tru wisdom will also preserve from those who lead to fleshly lusts, whic defile the body, that living temple, and war against the soul. Thes are evils which excite the sorrow of every serious mind, and caus every reflecting parent to look upon his children with anxiety, les they should be entangled in such fatal snares. Let the sufferings of others be our warnings. Our Lord Jesus deters from sinful pleasures, by the everlasting torments which follow them. It is very rare that an who are caught in this snare of the devil, recover themselves; so muc is the heart hardened, and the mind blinded, by the deceitfulness of this sin. Many think that this caution, besides the literal sense, is to be understood as a caution against idolatry, and subjecting the sou to the body, by seeking any forbidden object. The righteous must leav the earth as well as the wicked; but the earth is a very differen thing to them. To the wicked it is all the heaven they ever shall have to the righteous it is the place of preparation for heaven. And is in all one to us, whether we share with the wicked in the miseries of their latter end, or share those everlasting joys that shall crow believers __________________________________________________________________
