SEV Biblia, Chapter 9:7 El que castiga al burlador, afrenta se acarrea; el que reprende al impío, se atrae mancha.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 9:7 Verse 7. He that reproveth a scorner ] Ål lets, the person who mocks at sacred things; the libertine, the infidel; who turns the most serious things into ridicule, and, by his wit, often succeeds in rendering the person who reproves him ridiculous. Wisdom seems here to intimate that it is vain to attempt by reproof to amend such: and yet we must not suffer sin upon our neighbour; at all hazards, we must deliver our own soul. But no reproof should be given to any, but in the spirit of love and deep concern; and when they contradict and blaspheme, leave them to God.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 7. He that reproveth a scorner getteth to himself shame , etc.] Intimating, that though the simple, and such as want understanding, and of whom there is hope of doing them good, are to be invited into Wisdom’s house; yet not the haughty scorner, the abandoned sinner, the scoffer at all religion, who walks after his own lusts, and is quite irreclaimable; it is but casting pearls before swine, and giving that which is holy to dogs, to reprove and exhort such persons; though the Gospel is to be preached to every creature, yet when men despise it, and make a mock at it, they are to be turned from, and no more is to be said to them; as the Jews of old, they were the first invited to the Gospel feast, the same that is described in the context; they made light of it, contradicted and blasphemed the word, and so judged themselves unworthy of it; wherefore Wisdom’s maidens, or Christ’s ministers, were bid to turn from them, and go to the Gentiles, and preach it to them; for it is to no purpose to address such persons; “shame” is the sure consequence of it, because a man is disappointed of the end he has in view, which is doing good; and he that rebuketh a wicked [man getteth] himself a blot ; this shows who is meant by a scorner, a very profligate man, bent on his wicked ways, and quite incorrigible; to rebuke such an one is not only labour lost, and in vain, but the rebuker getteth himself an ill name, and is sure to have the dirt of reproach and scandal cast upon him; though this a man might patiently bear, if there was any hope of doing good.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-12 - Christ has prepared ordinances to which his people are admitted, and by which nourishment is given here to those that believe in him, as wel as mansions in heaven hereafter. The ministers of the gospel go fort to invite the guests. The call is general, and shuts out none that d not shut out themselves. Our Saviour came, not to call the righteous but sinners; not the wise in their own eyes, who say they see. We mus keep from the company and foolish pleasures of the ungodly, or we neve can enjoy the pleasures of a holy life. It is vain to seek the compan of wicked men in the hope of doing them good; we are far more likely to be corrupted by them. It is not enough to forsake the foolish, we mus join those that walk in wisdom. There is no true wisdom but in the way of religion, no true life but in the end of that way. Here is the happiness of those that embrace it. A man cannot be profitable to God it is for our own good. Observe the shame and ruin of those who sligh it. God is not the Author of sin: and Satan can only tempt, he cannot force. Thou shalt bear the loss of that which thou scornest: it wil add to thy condemnation.
