Whoso is withholding corn, the people execrate him, And a blessing is for the head of him who is selling.
Proverbs 11:26 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
He that withholdeth corn - Who refuses to sell because he hopes for a dearth, and then he can make his own price.
The people shall curse him - Yes, and God shall curse him also; and if he do not return and repent, he will get God's curse, and the curse of the poor, which will be a canker in his money during time, and in his soul throughout eternity.
