SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:1 Â¶ Oíd, hijos, el castigo del padre; y estad atentos para que sepáis inteligencia.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 4:1 Verse 1. Hear, ye children ] Come, my pupils, and hear how a father instructed his child. Such as I received from my father I give to you, and they were the teachings of a wise and affectionate parent to his only son, a peculiar object of his regards, and also those of a fond mother.
He introduces the subject thus, to show that the teaching he received, and which he was about to give them, was the most excellent of its kind. By this he ensured their attention, and made his way to their heart. Teaching by precept is good; teaching by example is better; but teaching both by precept and example is best of all.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1. Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father , etc.] Either of God their father, as Gersom interprets it; or rather of Solomon their father: and so he recommends his instruction from the relation he stood in to them; for, since he was their father, he would give them no bad instruction; and, since they were his children, they ought to receive it: by whom are meant, not his children in a natural sense, or the children of his body; but his disciples, such who applied to him for knowledge, and whom he undertook to learn; and attend to know understanding ; what would serve to enlighten, enlarge, improve, and inform their understandings; what would lead them into the knowledge and understanding of things divine and spiritual, and which would be worth knowing; and of having their understandings stored and enriched with.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-13 - We must look upon our teachers as our fathers: though instruction carr in it reproof and correction, bid it welcome. Solomon's parents love him, therefore taught him. Wise and godly men, in every age of the world, and rank in society, agree that true wisdom consists i obedience, and is united to happiness. Get wisdom, take pains for it Get the rule over thy corruptions; take more pains to get this than the wealth of this world. An interest in Christ's salvation is necessary This wisdom is the one thing needful. A soul without true wisdom an grace is a dead soul. How poor, contemptible, and wretched are those who, with all their wealth and power, die without gettin understanding, without Christ, without hope, and without God! Let u give heed to the sayings of Him who has the words of eternal life. Thu our path will be plain before us: by taking, and keeping fast hold of instruction, we shall avoid being straitened or stumbling.
