|New International Version (© 2011)|
The poor are shunned by all their relatives-- how much more do their friends avoid them! Though the poor pursue them with pleading, they are nowhere to be found.
King James Bible
All the brethren of the poor do hate him: how much more do his friends go far from him? he pursueth them with words, yet they are wanting to him.
American Standard Version
All the brethren of the poor do hate him: How much more do his friends go far from him! He pursueth them with words, but they are gone.
Young's Literal Translation
All the brethren of the poor have hated him, Surely also his friends have been far from him, He is pursuing words -- they are not!
Proverbs 19:7 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Do hate him - They shun him as they do the person they hate. They neither hate him positively, nor love him: they disregard him; they will have nothing to do with him. שנא sana signifies not only to hate, but to show a less degree of love to one than another. So Jacob loved Rachel, but hated Leah - showed her less affection than he did to Rachel.
