Proverbs 15:22 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

16 Better is little with the fear of Jahve,

     Than great store and trouble therewith.

The ב in both cases the lxx rightly renders by μετά. How מהוּמה (elsewhere of wild, confused disorder, extreme discord) is meant of store and treasure, Psalm 39:7 shows: it is restless, covetous care and trouble, as the contrast of the quietness and contentment proceeding from the fear of God, the noisy, wild, stormy running and hunting about of the slave of mammon. Theodotion translates the word here, as Aquila and Symmachus elsewhere, by words which correspond (φαγέδαινα equals φάγαινα or ἀχορτασία) with the Syr. יענותא, greed or insatiability.
