Proverbs 17:19 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

13 He that returneth evil for good,

     From his house evil shall not depart.

If ingratitude appertains to the sinful manifestations of ignoble selfishness, how much more sinful still is black ingratitude, which recompenses evil for good! (משׁיב, as 1 Samuel 25:21, syn. גּמל, to requite, Proverbs 3:30; Proverbs 31:12; שׁלּם, to reimburse, Proverbs 20:22). Instead of תמישׁ, the Kerı̂ reads תמוּשׁ; but that this verb, with a middle vowel, may be 'י'ע as well as 'ו'ע, Psalm 55:2 shows.
