Proverbs 29:11 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

5 A man who flattereth his neighbour

   Spreadeth a net for his steps.

Fleischer, as Bertheau: vir qui alterum blanditiis circumvenit; but in the על there does not lie in itself a hostile tendency, an intention to do injury; it interchanges with אל, Psalm 36:3, and what is expressed in line second happens also, without any intention on the part of the flatterer: the web of the flatterer before the eyes of a neighbour becomes, if he is caught thereby, a net for him in which he is entangled to his own destruction (Hitzig). החליק signifies also, without any external object, Proverbs 28:23; Proverbs 2:16, as internally transitive: to utter that which is smooth, i.e., flattering. פּעמיו is, as Psalm 57:7 equals רגליו, for which it is the usual Phoenician word.
