G. Campbell Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible
Proverbs 15

 

 

Verses 1-33

Verse Proverbs 15:11. This is a simple method of drawing attention to God's perfect knowledge of all the deepest and hidden things. If that which is most full of mystery to us is perfectly known to Him, how well He must know our hearts.

Verse Proverbs 15:23. This proverb sets forth the satisfaction of being able to say the right thing at the right moment. The explanation of its first part is found in the phrase in the second, "in due season."

Verse Proverbs 15:24. A recognition of the two forces of which man is ever conscious the upward pull and the downward pull with a declaration that wisdom consists in answering the upward.

Verse Proverbs 15:27. The "gain" here referred to must mean a bribe. The meaning of the proverb then becomes perfectly plain.
