Proverbs 22:8 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

2 The rich and the poor meet together;

   The creator of them all is Jahve.

From this, that God made them all, i.e., rich and poor in the totality of their individuals, it follows that the meeting together is His will and His ordinance; they shall in life push one against another, and for what other purpose than that this relationship of mutual intercourse should be a school of virtue: the poor shall not envy the rich (Proverbs 3:31), and the rich shall not despise the poor, who has the same God and Father as himself (Proverbs 14:31; Proverbs 17:5; Proverbs 31:15); they shall remain conscious of this, that the intermingling of the diversities of station is for this end, that the lowly should serve the exalted, and the exalted should serve the lowly. Proverbs 29:13 is a variation; there also for both, but particularly for the rich, lies in the proverb a solemn warning.
