Proverbs 15:6 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

35 The king's favour is towards a prudent servant,

     And his wrath visits the base.

Regarding the contrasts משׂכּיל and מבישׁ, vid., at Proverbs 10:5; cf. Proverbs 12:4. The substantival clause 35a may mean: the king's favour has (possesses)..., as well as: it is imparted to, an intelligent servant; the arrangement of the words is more favourable to the latter rendering. In 35b the gender of the verb is determined by attraction after the pred., as is the case also at Genesis 31:8; Job 15:31, Ewald, 317c. And "his wrath" is equivalent to is the object of it, cf. 22b, Proverbs 13:18. The syntactical character of the clause does not permit the supplying of ל from 35a. Luther's translation proceeds only apparently from this erroneous supposition.
