28:1 The wicked a flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.

    (a) Because their own conscience accuses them.
28:2 For the transgression of a land b many [are] its princes: but by a man of understanding [and] knowledge [its] state shall be prolonged.
    (b) The state of the commonwealth is often changed.
28:8 He that by interest and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather c it for him that will pity the poor.
    (c) For God will take away the wicked usurer, and give his goods to him that will bestow them well.
28:9 He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer [shall be] d abomination.
    (d) Because it is not of faith which is grounded on God's word or law which the wicked contemn.
28:11 The rich man [is] wise in his own conceit; but the poor man that hath understanding searcheth e him out.
    (e) And judge that he is not wise.
28:12 When righteous [men] rejoice, [there is] great glory: but when the wicked rise, a man f is hidden.
    (f) He is known by his doings to be wicked.

28:14 Happy [is] the man that g feareth always: but he that hardeneth his heart shall fall into mischief.

    (g) Which stands in awe of God, and is afraid to offend him.
28:15 [As] a roaring lion, and a ranging bear; [so is] h a wicked ruler over the poor people.
    (h) For he can never be satisfied but always oppresses and spoils.
28:17 A man that doeth violence to the blood of [any] person shall flee to the pit; let no man i sustain him.
    (i) No one will be able to deliver him.
28:21 To have respect of persons [is] not good: for for a piece of k bread [that] man will transgress.
    (k) He will be abused for nothing.
28:22 He that hasteneth to be rich [hath] an evil l eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him.
    (l) Meaning, he that is covetous.
28:25 He that is of a proud heart stirreth up strife: but he that putteth his trust in the LORD shall be made m fat.
    (m) Will have all things in abundance.
