Proverbs 16:11 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Here follow three proverbs of divine punishment, expiatio [Vershnung] and reconciliatio [Vershnung].

5 An abomination of Jahve is every one who is haughty;

   The hand for it [assuredly] he remains not unpunished.

Proverbs thus commencing we already had at Proverbs 15:9, Proverbs 15:26. גּבהּ is a metaplastic connecting form of גּבהּ; on the contrary, גּבהּ, 1 Samuel 16:7; Psalm 103:11, means being high, as גּבהּ, height; the form underlying גּבהּ is not גּבהּ (as Gesen. and Olshausen write it), but גּבהּ. In 5b, Proverbs 11:21 is repeated. The translators are perplexed in their rendering of יד ליד. Fleischer: ab aetate in aetatem non (i.e., nullo unquam tempore futuro) impunis erit.
