SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:1 Â¶ Hijo mío, guarda mis razones, y encierra contigo mis mandamientos.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 7:1 Verse 1. My son, keep my words ] See chap. ii. 1.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1. My son, keep my words , etc.] Doctrines and instructions; which, as a father to a son, or a master to his scholars, he had delivered; these he would have him observe and attend to; and lay up my commandments with thee : as a treasure in his heart, to be brought out upon occasion; to be kept as valuable, and made use of as an antidote against and a preservative from sinning; (see <19B911> Psalm 119:11).
The Septuagint and Arabic versions add, what is not in the Hebrew text, “son, honour the Lord, and thou shalt be strong;” the Arabic adds, “and he shall strengthen thee; and fear none besides him.”
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-5 - We must lay up God's commandments safely. Not only, Keep them, and yo shall live; but, Keep them as those that cannot live without them Those that blame strict and careful walking as needless and to precise, consider not that the law is to be kept as the apple of the eye; indeed the law in the heart is the eye of the soul. Let the wor of God dwell in us, and so be written where it will be always at han to be read. Thus we shall be kept from the fatal effects of our ow passions, and the snares of Satan. Let God's word confirm our dread of sin, and resolutions against it.
