Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible

Proverbs 27

Verses 1-27

Verse Proverbs 27:5. This proverb takes for granted the need for rebuke, and by 'love that is hidden" is meant a love which fails to rebuke.

Verse Proverbs 27:14. There is nothing more calculated to arouse suspicion than profuse protestations of friendship.

Verses Proverbs 27:15-16. These must be read together. The first part suggests the persistence and wearisomeness of a contentious woman; the second part the inability to hinder her.

Verse Proverbs 27:21. There are three interpretations of this proverb. First, that you may know what a man is by the way he bears praise. Second, that you may know what a man is by the things he praises. Third, that a man who treats praise as the fining pot treats silver and gold purges it of unworthy substance.

Verses Proverbs 27:23-27. A brief proverbial discourse setting forth the advantages of a simple agricultural life over a life spent in amassing wealth.
