19:7 All the brethren of the poor do hate him: how much more do his friends go far from him? he pursueth [them a with] words, [yet] they [are] lacking [to him].

    (a) To have comfort from them.
19:8 He that getteth wisdom b loveth his own soul: he that keepeth understanding shall find good.
    (b) He that is upright in judgment finds favour from God.
19:10 c Delight is not proper for a fool; much less for a servant to have rule over princes.
    (c) The free use of things are not to be permitted to him who cannot use them correctly.
19:11 The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and [it is] his glory d to pass over a transgression.
    (d) That is, to cover it by charity, and to do in it as may most serve to God's glory.
19:13 A foolish son [is] the calamity of his father: and the contentions of a wife [are] a continual e dropping.
    (e) As rain that drops and rots the house.
19:19 A man of great wrath shall suffer punishment: for if thou f deliver [him], yet thou must do it again.
    (f) Though for a time he gives place to counsel, yet soon after will he give place to his raging affections.

19:21 [There are] many devices in a g man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand.

    (g) Man's device will not have success, unless God governs it, whose purpose is unchangeable.
19:22 The desire of a man [is] his h kindness: and a poor man [is] better than a liar.
    (h) That is, that he be honest: for the poor man who is honest is to be esteemed above the rich who is not virtuous.
19:25 Smite a scorner, and the i simple will beware: and reprove one that hath understanding, [and] he will understand knowledge.
    (i) That is, the simple and ignorant men learn when they see the wicked punished.
19:28 An ungodly witness scorneth judgment: and the mouth of the wicked k devoureth iniquity.
    (k) Takes a pleasure and delight in it, as gluttons and drunkards in delicate meats and drinks.
