Proverbs 19:14 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

8 He that getteth understanding loveth his soul,

   And he that values reasonableness will acquire good;

or, more closely, since this would be the translation of ימצא טוב, Proverbs 16:20; Proverbs 17:20 : so it happens, or it comes to this, that he acquires good ( equals היה למצא); the inf. with ל is here, as at Proverbs 18:24, the expression of a fut. periphrasticum, as in the Lat. consecturus est. Regarding קנה־לּב, vid., Proverbs 15:32, and שׁמר תּבוּנה vol. i. p. 119. That the deportment of men is either care for the soul, or the contrary of that, is a thought which runs through the Book of Proverbs.
