Verse-by-Verse Bible Commentary

Proverbs 16:29

A man of violence entices his neighbor And leads him in a way that is not good.

Coffman's Commentaries on the Bible

"A man of violence enticeth his neighbor, And leadeth him in a way that is not good."

Behold here the wickedness of the violent man. He is the incarnation of Unbelief. "He robs God, takes life without paying for it, blasphemes the Maker on his throne, stares broadly at the truth when he hears it, and flouts it as if he never heard of it. Unbelief is violence."![30] "Such sons of the devil take pleasure in seducing the virtuous from the way of life. Just as there is joy in heaven over one sinner that repents, there is malicious joy in hell when such a seducer turns any one from the straight and narrow way."[31]

John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

A violent man enticeth his neighbour,.... As false teachers do, who are grievous wolves, not sparing the flock, and who by good words and fair speeches deceive the heart of the simple; and as the man of sin, that has shed the blood of the saints, and been drunk with the same, deceives with his miracles and sorceries them that dwell on the earth;

and leadeth him into the way that is not good; yea, into one that is very bad; so far are false teachers from leading their neighbours into the good old way of truth and righteousness, that they lead them into pernicious ways, by whom the way; of truth is spoken evil of; they lead them into a ditch, and into destruction hereafter; as does the man of sin and violence his followers.

Keil & Delitzsch Commentary on the Old Testament

29 A man of violence enticeth his neighbour,

And leadeth him in a way which is not good.

Cf. Genesis 4:8. The subject is not moral enticement, but enticement to some place or situation which facilitates to the violent man the carrying out of his violent purpose (misdemeanour, robbery, extortion, murder). חמס (here with אישׁ at Proverbs 3:31) is the injustice of club-law, the conduct of him who puts his superior power in godless rudeness in the place of God, Habakkuk 1:11, cf. Job 12:6. “A way not good” (cf. Psalms 36:5) is the contradictory contrast of the good way: one altogether evil and destructive.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

Proverbs 16:29 A violent man enticeth his neighbour, and leadeth him into the way [that is] not good.

Ver. 29. A violent man enticeth his neighbour.] As those seducers at Ephesus "dragged disciples after them" (a) [Acts 20:30] compelling them by their persuasions to embrace distorted doctrines, such as cause convulsions of conscience. Such are said to "thrust men out of God’s ways"; [Deuteronomy 13:5] as Jeroboam did the house of Israel; as Julian and other cunning persecutors did in the primitive times, prevailing as much by their tising tongues, as by their terrifying saws. (b) Hebrews 11:37, "They were sawn asunder, they were tempted." The apostle ranks and reckons their alluring promises among their violent practices. But "though they speak fair, believe them not; for there are seven abominations in their hearts." [Proverbs 26:25]

Matthew Poole's English Annotations on the Holy Bible

A violent man, Heb. a man of violence, i.e. devoted to violent and injurious courses,

enticeth his neighbour into a confederacy with him in his wicked practices, as it follows.

That is not good, i.e. that is very sinful, as this phrase is used, Proverbs 17:26 18:5, and oft elsewhere.

Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible - Unabridged

A violent man enticeth his neighbour, and leadeth him into the way that is not good.

A violent man enticeth his neighbour, and leadeth him into the way (that is) not good. The violent man, when violence is not likely to succeed, resorts to enticement, and stitches the fox's skin on the lion's skin, in order to effect his violent purpose of destroying "his neighbour" (cf. Psalms 10:4-10). As Proverbs 16:28 spoke of pernicious separation, so this Proverbs 16:29 speaks of sinful unions.
