Proverbs 28:17 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

11 A rich man deems himself wise;

     But a poor man that hath understanding searcheth him out,

or, as we have translated, Proverbs 18:17, goes to the bottom of him, whereby is probably thought of the case that he seeks to use him as a means to an ignoble end. The rich man appears in his own eyes to be a wise man, i.e., in his self-delusion he thinks that he is so; but if he has anything to do with a poor man who has intelligence, then he is seen through by him. Wisdom is a gift not depending on any earthly possession.
