    SEV Biblia, Chapter 22:29

    ¶ ¿Has visto hombre solícito en su obra? Delante de los reyes estar; no estar delante de los oscuros.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 22:29

    Verse 29. He shalt not stand before mean
    men. ] ykj chashukkim, dark or obscure persons; men of no repute. "Na he schal ben before un-noble men". - Old MS. Bible. "Not amonge the symple people." - Coverdale.

    The general meaning of the proverb is, "Every diligent, active man, shall be at once independent and respectable."


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 29. Seest thou a man diligent in his business ? etc.] In the business of his calling, be it what it will, whether for himself or his master; constant in it, swift, ready, and expeditious at it; who industriously pursues it, cheerfully attends it, makes quick dispatch of it; does it off of hand, at once, and is not slothful in it, nor weary of it; when you have observed and taken notice of such a man, which is not very common, you may, without a spirit of prophecy, foresee that such a man will rise in the world; he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean [men] , or obscure persons f616 ; he shall not continue in the service of ignoble persons, or keep company with them; but he shall be taken into the service of princes and noble men, and be admitted into their presence, and receive favours from them; as Joseph, who was industrious and diligent in his business in Potiphars house, was in process of time advanced, and stood before Pharaoh king of Egypt, ( Genesis 39:4 41:46). This may be spiritually applied. Every good man has a work or business to do in a religious way; some in a higher sphere, as officers of churches, ministers and deacons; the work of the one lies in reading, study, meditation, and prayer, in the ministration of the word and ordinances, and other duties of their once; and the business of the others in taking care of the poor, and the secular affairs of the churches; others in a lower way, and common to all Christians, which lies in the exercise of grace, and performance of all good works, relative to themselves, their families, and the church of God. Now ministers that are diligent in teaching and ruling; and deacons that do their office well; and private Christians, who are steadfast and immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord; are ready to every good work, heartily engaged in it, and constantly at it; shall not be company for the sons of darkness, unregenerate men, who are in the dark, and darkness itself; what communion has light with darkness, with works of darkness, they should be not workers of? or have any fellowship with the prince of darkness, from whose power they are delivered; but shall have society with the saints, who are made kings and priests unto God; shall be admitted into the presence of the King of kings now, and have communion with him; and shall stand before him at the great day with confidence, and not be ashamed; shall stand at his right hand, and shall be for ever with him. So the Jews interpret this place, he shall not stand before dark ones, in hell; he shall stand before kings, in the garden of Eden, in paradise; that is, in heaven.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 28 - We are taught not to
    trespass on another man's right. And it is hard to find a truly industrious man. Such a man will rise. Seest thou a ma diligent in the business of religion? He is likely to excel. Let u then be diligent in God's work __________________________________________________________________
