Proverbs 1:31 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

פּרע is synonymous with נטשׁ, Proverbs 1:8; cf. Proverbs 4:15 פּרעהוּ, turn from it. Gesenius has inaccurately interpreted the phrase פרע ראש of the shaving off of the hair, instead of the letting it fly loose. פרע means to loosen ( equals to lift up, syn. החל), to release, to set free; it combines the meanings of loosening and making empty, or at liberty, which is conveyed in Arab. by fr' and frg. The latter means, intrans., to be set free, therefore to be or to become free from occupation or business; with mn of an object, to be free from it, i.e., to have accomplished it, to have done with it (Fl.). Thus: since ye have dismissed (missum fecistis) all my counsel (עצה as לדה, from יעץ, Arabic w'd), i.e., what I always would advise to set you right. אבה combines in itself the meanings of consent, Proverbs 1:10, and compliance, Proverbs 1:30 (with ל), and, as here, of acceptance. The principal clause begins like an echo of Psalm 2:4 (cf. Jeremiah 20:7).
