    SEV Biblia, Chapter 24:9

    El pensamiento del loco es pecado; y abominación a los hombres el burlador.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 24:9

    Verse 9. The thought of foolishness is
    sin ] tafj tlwa tmz zimmath ivveleth chattath. "The device of folly is transgression;" or, "an evil purpose is sinful;" or, perhaps more literally, "the device of the foolish is sin." It has been variously understood by the versions.

    "The cunning: of the fool is sin." - Targum.

    "The imprudent man (or fool, afrwn) shall die in sins." - Septuagint.

    So the Arabic.

    "The thinkynge of the fool is synne". - Old MS. Bible.

    Fool is here taken for a wicked man, who is not only evil in his actions, but every thought of his heart is evil, and that continually. A simple thought about foolishness, or about sin itself, is not sinful; it is the purpose or device, the harbouring evil thoughts, and devising how to sin, that is criminal.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 9. The thoughts of foolishness [is] sin , etc.] The thought of sin is sin f655 , before it comes into action; the motions of sin in the mind, the workings of corrupt nature in the heart, the sinful desires of the flesh and of the mind: these are forbidden and condemned by the law of God as sin, which says, “Thou shall not covet”, ( Exodus 20:17), and stand in need of pardoning grace and mercy; (see Romans 7:5,7 Acts 8:22). Or, “the thoughts of a foolish man are sin” f656 ; that is, of a wicked man; in all whose thoughts God is not, but sin is; the imagination of the thoughts of his heart is evil, and that continually; he thinks of nothing else but sin, ( Genesis 6:5); and the scorner [is] an abomination to men ; who not only thinks ill of divine things, and despises them in his heart, which is only known to God; but scoffs at them with his lips, makes a jest of all that is good, derides religion and religious men; and to such he is an abomination: and indeed one that is proud and haughty, scorner is his name, and that deals in proud wrath, and scorns all around him, in whatsoever company he comes, and that ridicules every person, and every thing that is said in conversation, is usually hated and abhorred by all sorts of men.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 7-9 - A
    weak man thinks wisdom is too high for him, therefore he will take n pains for it. It is bad to do evil, but worse to devise it. Even the first risings of sin in the heart are sin, and must be repented of Those that strive to make others hateful, make themselves so.
