That thy trust may be in Jehovah, I caused thee to know to-day, even thou.
Proverbs 22:19 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
That thy trust may be in the Lord, I have made known, etc. -
III. The End for which the wise man gives these instructions: -
1. "That thy trust may be in the Lord." That thou mayest acknowledge Him as the Fountain of all good; and refer every thing to him.
2. That this end may be accomplished, the instructions are specific and particular: "I have made known to thee, even to thee."
3. And this has not only been done in times past, "I have made known:" but even in the present, "I have made known this day!"
IV. An appeal is made to the person himself relative to the matter and importance of the teaching.
1. "Have I not written to thee excellent things;" שלשים shalishim, literally threefold, thrice, in three different ways; which some think refers to his three books: -
1. Song of Solomon.
2. Koheleth, or Ecclesiastes.
Others, understanding it of the voice of Divine wisdom, suppose the three grand divisions of the sacred oracles are intended; viz.,
1. The Law;
2. The Prophets;
