Proverbs 9:5 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

This verse gives the reason for pronouncing those happy who honour Wisdom. The Chethı̂b is כי מצאי מצאי חיּים, but the passing over into the sing. 35b is harsh and objectionable; the Kerı̂ rightly regards the second מצאי as a mistaken repetition of the first, and substitutes כי מצאי מצא חיים, with which the וחטאי (Proverbs 8:36) of the antithesis agrees. Regarding מצאי, for which, less accurately, מצאי (only with the Dech without Metheg) is generally written, vid., Accentuationssystem, vii. 2. הפיק, to get out equals reach, exchanged with מצא, Proverbs 3:13 (vid., there); according to its etymon, it is connected with מן, of him from or by whom one has reached anything; here, as Proverbs 12:2; Proverbs 18:22, God's favour, favorem a Jova impetravit.
