Proverbs 19:15 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The group of proverbs (Proverbs 19:9-16) now following begins and closes in the same way as the preceding.

9 A lying witness doth not remain unpunished,

   And one who breathes out lies perisheth,

or goeth to ruin, for אבד (R. בד, to divide, separate) signifies to lose oneself in the place of the separated, the dead (Arab. in the infinite). In Proverbs 19:5, instead of this ἀπολεῖται (lxx), the negative οὐ σωθήσεται is used, or as the lxx there more accurately renders it, οὐ διαφεύξεται.
