    SEV Biblia, Chapter 24:13

    ΒΆ Come, hijo mío, de la miel, porque es buena, y del panal dulce a tu paladar;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 24:13

    Verse 13. And the honey-comb ] I have often had occasion to remark how much finer the flavour of
    honey is in the honey- comb than it is after it has been expressed from it, and exposed to the action of the air. But it has been asserted that the honey-comb is never eaten; it must be by those who have no acquaintance with the apiary. I have seen the comb with its contained honey eaten frequently, and of it I have repeatedly partaken.

    And that our Lord ate it, is evident from Luke xxiv. 42. Nor can any man who has not eaten it in this way feel the full force of the allusions to the honey-comb and its sweetness in several parts of the sacred writings. See 1 Sam. xiv. 27; Psa. xix. 10; Proverbs v. 3; xvi. 24; xxvii. 7; Cant. iv. 11; v. 1; and the place before us.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 13. My son, eat thou honey, because [it is] good , etc.] It is good for food; there was plenty of it in Palestine, and it was eaten for food, not only by children, but grown persons; and was very nourishing, strengthening, and refreshing to them, as Samson, Jonathan, John the Baptist, and others; and is good for medicine, is healthful and salutary, and useful in many diseases: it is said to conduce much to prolong life and preserve from diseases; it has been observed that those who have much used it have lived to a great age; and the honeycomb, [which is] sweet to thy taste ; because it is so, as all honey is, and especially that which is immediately squeezed or drops from the honeycomb; this is said not so much on account of honey, and the eating of that, as for what follows concerning the knowledge of wisdom, which is comparable to it for pleasure and profit; see ( Proverbs 16:24 Psalm 19:11 119:103) f663 .

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 13, 14 - We are quickened to the
    study of wisdom by considering both the pleasure and the profit of it. All men relish things that are sweet to the palate; but many have no relish for the things that are sweet to the purified soul, and that make us wise unto salvation.
