Chapter 19

Verse 2
Hasteth - That rashly and headily rushes into actions.

Verse 3
Perverteth - Blasts his designs and enterprises. Fretteth - He ascribes his unhappiness not to his own sin, but to God and his providence.

Verse 6
A friend - in profession.

Verse 7
Brethren - His nearest relations. Hate - Despise and shun him. Pursueth - Earnestly imploring their pity.

Verse 10
Delight - To live in pleasure and outward glory, doth not become him, nor suit with him; because prosperity corrupts even wise men, and makes fools mad; and because it gives him more opportunity to discover his folly, and to do mischief both to himself and others.

Verse 13
Dropping - Are like rain continually dropping upon an house.

Verse 15
Casteth - Makes a man careless, and like one asleep in his business.

Verse 16
His ways - The commands of God.

Verse 18
While - Before custom in sin, and thy indulgence have made him incorrigible. Let not - Forbear not to give him due and necessary correction.

Verse 19
Great wrath - Of strong passions. Deliver - If thou forbear to punish him. Do it - Thou must deliver him again and again.

Verse 22
The desire - The hearty desire of being kind is accepted by God, and should be owned by men as a real kindness. A poor man - Who is not able to give what he desires to do. A liar - Than a rich man who feeds the poor with fair promises, but doth not perform what he pretends.

Verse 23
Satisfied - Shall be fully contented with God's favour and blessing.

Verse 24
Bring it - To feed himself; he expects that the meat should drop into his mouth.

Verse 25
Scorner - An obstinate and impudent transgressor. Simple - Who sin thro' ignorance, being possibly drawn to it by the scorner's evil counsel or example. Reprove - A verbal reproof will be more effectual for his reformation, than the severest punishments will be to a scorner.

Verse 26
Wasteth - His father's estate. Chaseth - Causes her to avoid his presence, and to go from the house where he is.

Verse 28
Scorneth - Hath no reverence to the place of justice, nor to the presence of God there. Devoureth - Utters it with greediness and delight.

Verse 29
Prepared - Although they be deferred for a time, yet they are treasured up for them.
