Proverbs 28:27 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

With a proverb, in the first half of which is repeated the beginning of the second appendix, Proverbs 24:23, a new group commences:

21 Respect of persons is not good;

     And for a morsel of bread a man may become a transgressor.

Line first refers to the administration of justice, and line second - the special generalized - to social life generally. The "morsel of bread," as example of a bribe by means of which the favour of the judge is purchased, is too low a conception. Hitzig well: "even a trifle, a morsel of bread (1 Samuel 2:36), may, as it awakens favour and dislike within us, thus in general call forth in the will an inclination tending to draw one aside from the line of strict rectitude." Geier compares A Gellius' Noct. Att. i. 15, where Cato says of the Tribune Coelius: Frusto panis conduci potest vel ut taceat vel ut loquatur.
