|New International Version (© 2011)|
For the waywardness of the simple will kill them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them;
King James Bible
For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.
American Standard Version
For the backsliding of the simple shall slay them, And the careless ease of fools shall destroy them.
Young's Literal Translation
For the turning of the simple slayeth them, And the security of the foolish destroyeth them.
Proverbs 1:32 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
For the turning away of the simple - This difficult place seems to refer to such a case as we term turning king's evidence; where an accomplice saves his own life by impeaching the rest of his gang. This is called his turning or repentance, משובה meshubah; and he was the most likely to turn, because he was of the פתים pethayim, seduced or deceived persons. And this evidence was given against them when they were in their prosperity, שלוה shalvah, their security, enjoying the fruits of their depredations; and being thus in a state of fancied security, they were the more easily taken and brought to justice.
