10:2 Treasures of a wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death.

    (a) That is, wickedly gotten.
10:3 The LORD will b not allow the soul of the righteous to famish: but he casteth away the substance of the wicked.
    (b) Though he permits the just to want for a time, yet he will send him comfort in due season.
10:6 Blessings [are] upon the head of the just: but violence covereth the mouth of c the wicked.
    (c) When their wickedness is discovered, they will be as dumb and not know what to say.
10:7 The memory of the just [is] blessed: but the name of the wicked shall d perish.
    (d) Shall be vile and abhorred both by God and man, contrary to their own expectation, who think to make their name immortal.
10:10 He that e winketh with the eye causeth sorrow: but a f prating fool shall fall.
    (e) That bears a fair countenance and imagines mischief in his heart, as in (Pr 6:13).
    (f) For the corruption of his heart is known by his talk.
10:13 In the lips of him that hath understanding wisdom is found: but g a rod [is] for the back of him that is void of understanding.
    (g) That is, God will find him out to punish him.

10:15 The rich man's wealth [is] his h strong city: the destruction of the poor [is] their poverty.

    (h) And so makes him bold to do evil, while poverty bridles the poor from many evil things.
10:21 The lips of the righteous i feed many: but fools die for lack of wisdom.
    (i) For they speak truth and edify many by exhortations, admonition and counsel.
10:22 The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth k no sorrow with it.
    (k) Meaning that all worldly things bring care and sorrow, where as they who feel the blessings of God have none.
10:26 As vinegar to the teeth, and as smoke to the eyes, so [is] the sluggard to them that l send him.
    (l) He is trouble and grief to him about any business.
10:27 The fear of the LORD prolongeth days: but the years of the wicked m shall be shortened.
    (m) The time of their prosperity will be short because of their great fall, though they seem to live long.
10:30 The righteous shall n never be removed: but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth.
    (n) They enjoy in this life by faith and hope, their everlasting life.
