Proverbs 26:26 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

There now follow proverbs regarding the nirgân, the slanderer (vid., regarding the formation and import of this word at Proverbs 26:28):

20 Where the wood faileth, the fire goeth out;

     And where no tale-bearer, discord cometh to silence.

Wood, as material for building or for burning, is called, with the plur. of its product, עצים. Since אפס is the absolute end of a thing, and thus expresses its no longer existing, so it was more appropriate to wood (Fleischer: consumtis lignis) than to the tale-bearer, of whom the proverb says the same thing as Proverbs 22:10 says of the mocker.
