SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:8 Crece en ella, y ella te engrandecerá; ella te honrará, cuando tú la hubieres abrazado.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 4:8 Verse 8. She shall bring thee to honour ] There is nothing, a strict life of piety and benevolence excepted, that has such a direct tendency to reflect honour upon a man, as the careful cultivation of his mind. One of Bacon's aphorisms was, Knowledge is power; and it is truly astonishing to see what influence true learning has. Nothing is so universally respected, provided the learned man be a consistent moral character, and be not proud and overbearing; which is a disgrace to genuine literature.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 8. Exalt her, and she shall promote thee , etc.] Christ is to be exalted in his person, by asserting his proper deity; by ascribing all divine perfections to him; by allowing him to be the author of all divine works; by giving him divine worship and homage; by owning his divine and eternal sonship, and distinct personality: he is to be exalted in all his offices of Prophet, Priest, and King, and as the only Redeemer and Saviour; by trusting in him, embracing his Gospel, and submitting to his ordinances, and such that exalt him, he will “promote” them here and hereafter; of which more in the next clause. According to the Talmudists f92 , the word for “exalt” signifies a diligent search, by turning things about to find out what is sought; and so the Septuagint interpret the word in the sense of “searching”, ( Jeremiah 50:26); she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her : by faith: for this is an act of faith, and a very considerable one, and is expressive of great nearness to Christ, of much intimacy and familiarity with him, of strong love and affection to him, of a good degree of boldness used with him, and of joy and exaltation in him; for such an action is used by persons near akin, and are very familiar with, and have a very great affection for one another, and use much freedom with each other, and rejoice at meeting together. Now such who embrace Christ, in the arms of their faith, as their alone Saviour, such he promotes and “brings to honour”; not to honour among men, for to embrace Christ and exalt him is the way to disgrace, though the disgrace is an honour, and will be before long rolled off; but to honour hereafter. Such will be set at his right hand, and be owned by him before his Father and his angels; and they will be placed on the same throne with him, and will reign with him for ever and ever; see ( 1 Samuel 2:30).
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.
