14:1 Every wise woman a buildeth her house: but the foolish
plucketh it down with her hands.
(a) That is, takes pains to profit her family, and to do
that which concerns her duty in her house.
14:2 He that walketh in his b uprightness feareth the LORD:
but [he that is] perverse in his ways despiseth him.
(b) That is, in uprightness of heart, and without
14:3 In the mouth of the foolish [is] a c rod of pride: but
the lips of the wise shall preserve them.
(c) His proud tongue will cause him to be punished.
14:4 Where no d oxen [are], the crib [is] clean: but much
increase [is] by the strength of the ox.
(d) By the ox is meant labour, and by the crib the barn,
meaning, without labour there is no profit.
14:5 A faithful witness will not lie: but e a false witness
will utter lies.
(e) For the maintenance of his own ambition, and not for
God's glory, as Simon Magus.
14:9 Fools make a mock at f sin: but among the righteous
[there is] favour.
(f) Does not know the grievousness of it, nor God's
judgments against the same.
14:10 The heart knoweth its own g bitterness; and a stranger
doth not intermeddle with its joy.
(g) As a man's conscience is witness to his own grief, so
another cannot feel the joy and comfort which a man
feels in himself.
14:13 Even in laughter the heart is sorrowful; h and the end
of that mirth [is] heaviness.
(h) He shows the allurement to sin, that it seems sweet,
but the end of it is destruction.
14:14 The backslider in heart i shall be filled with his own
ways: and a good man [shall be satisfied] from himself.
(i) He who forsakes God will be punished, and made weary
of his sins, in which he delighted.
14:19 The evil bow before the good; and the wicked k at the
gates of the righteous.
(k) If this come not daily to pass, we must consider that
it is because of our sins, which hinder God's
14:28 In the multitude of l people [is] the king's honour: but
in the lack of people [is] the destruction of the prince.
(l) That is, the strength of a king stands in many people.
14:33 Wisdom resteth in the heart of him that hath
understanding: but [that which is] m in the midst of
fools is made known.
(m) Forasmuch as they are convicted by it, and silenced.
