Proverbs 28:24 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

18 He who walketh blamelessly is helped,

     And he who is perverse in a double way suddenly perisheth.

The lxx translate תמים by δικαίως (as the accusative of manner), Aquila and Theodotion by τέλειος; but it may also be translated τέλειον or τελειότητα, as the object accus. of Proverbs 2:7. Instead of עקּשׁ דּרכים, Proverbs 28:6, there is here נעקּשׁ דּרכים, obliquely directed in a double way, or reflex bending himself. At Proverbs 28:6 we have interpreted the dual דּרכים rightly, thus בּאחת cannot refer back to one of these two ways; besides, דּרך as fem. is an anomaly, if not a solecism. בּאחת signifies, like the Aram. כּחרא, either all at once (for which the Mish. כּאחת, Aram. כּחרא), or once ( equals בּפּעם אחת), and it signifies in the passage before us, not: once, aliquando, as Nolde, with Flacius, explains, but: all at once, i.e., as Geier explains: penitus, sic ut pluribus casibus porro non sit opus. Schultens compares:

"Procubuit moriens et humum semel ore momordit."

(Note: Aeneid, xi. 418.)

Rightly Fleischer: repente totus concidet.
