    SEV Biblia, Chapter 25:16

    ¶ ¿Hallaste la miel? Come lo que te basta; no sea que hastiado de ella, la vomites.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 25:16

    Verse 16. Hast thou found
    honey? ] Make a moderate use of all thy enjoyments. "Let thy moderation be known unto all, and appear in all things."

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 16. Hast thou found
    honey ? etc.] Of which there was great plenty in Judea; and was to be found in fields and woods, ( 1 Samuel 14:25,26); eat so much as is sufficient for thee ; to satisfy appetite, without overcharging the stomach; what may be conducive to health, and no more; lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it ; that is, overfilled; filled to a loathing of it, so as to cause a casting of it up this is not merely to be understood in a literal sense; something more is intended, as in ( Proverbs 24:13); and according to the sense there, that which Maimonides gives of this seems agreeable; that it respects the getting of wisdom and knowledge, which, like honey, is sweet and desirable, and excellent, and nourishing, moderately used: but then persons should take care to keep within due bounds, and not seek to be too wise; or to exercise themselves in things too high for them, and aim at that which is above their capacity; but should content themselves with what is within their reach and compass: and so Gersom understands it. Some think that moderation in the use of worldly things and lawful pleasures is here recommended: and others that the words refer to what follow; that when a man has got a pleasant and delightful friend, he should not visit him too often; lest, too much familiarity bringing contempt, he should lose his friend: so Jarchi connects the words, Ver. 17. Withdraw thy foot from thy neighbour’s house , etc.] Not but that it is commendable to be neighbourly and friendly, or for one neighbour to visit another; but then it should not be very frequent; a man should not be always or often at his neighbour’s house. So the words may be rendered, “make thy foot precious” or “rare at thy neighbour’s house” f686 ; be seldom there; lest he be weary of thee, and [so] hate thee ; or, “lest he be sated with thee” f687 ; filled with thy company to a loathing of it, as the stomach with eating too much honey, and so his friendship be turned into hatred.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 16 -
    God has given us leave to use grateful things, but we are cautione against excess.
