24:7 Wisdom [is] too high for a fool: he openeth not his mouth in the a gate.

    (a) In the place where wisdom should be shown.
24:10 [If] thou b faintest in the day of adversity, thy strength [is] small.
    (b) Man has no trial of his strength till he is in trouble.
24:11 If thou refraineth to deliver [them that are] drawn to c death, and [those that are] ready to be slain;
    (c) No one can be excused, if he does not help the innocent when he is in danger.
24:13 My son, eat thou d honey, because [it is] good; and the honeycomb, [which is] sweet to thy taste:
    (d) As honey is sweet and pleasant to the taste, so wisdom is to the soul.
24:16 For a just [man] e falleth seven times, and riseth again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.
    (e) He is subject to many perils, but God delivers him.
24:18 Lest the LORD see [it], and it displease him, and he turn away his wrath f from him.
    (f) To be avenged on you.

24:22 For their calamity shall rise suddenly; and who knoweth the ruin of them g both?

    (g) Meaning, either of the wicked and seditious, as in (Pr 24:19,21) or of them who do not fear God or obey their king.
24:27 Prepare thy work outside, and make it fit for thyself in the field; h and afterwards build thy house.
    (h) Be sure of the means how to compass it, before you take any enterprise in hand.
24:29 Say not, I will do so to him as he hath done to me: I i will render to the man according to his work.
    (i) He shows what is the nature of the wicked, to revenge wrong for wrong.
24:32 Then I saw, [and] considered [it] well: I looked upon [it, and] received k instruction.
    (k) That I might learn by another man's fault.
24:33 [Yet] a little sleep, l a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:
    (l) )Read Geneva "Pr 6:10")
