Proverbs 11:27

He that diligently seeketh good
Or "early"; who rises early in the morning, as the word F5 signifies, and seeks both to do good, and to enjoy it all the day; who, in the first place, seeks the kingdom of God and his righteousness; who, in the morning of his youth, inquires after the best things; and diligently pursues what is for his own good and welfare, and that of others, and for the glory of God: procureth favour,
both of God and men: or, "seeketh favour" F6; or that which is acceptable and well-pleasing unto God; but he that seeketh mischief, it shall come unto him;
that seeks to do hurt to others; that which he seeks to do to them shall come upon himself; see (Psalms 9:15) ; so antichrist, that leads into captivity, shall go into captivity; and that kills with the sword, shall be killed by it, (Revelation 13:10) .
