Proverbs 29:18 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

12 A ruler who listens to deceitful words,

     All his servants are godless.

They are so because they deceive him, and they become so; for instead of saying the truth which the ruler does not wish to hear, they seek to gain his favour by deceitful flatteries, misrepresentations, exaggerations, falsehoods. Audita rex quae praecipit lex. He does not do this, as the saying is, sicut rex ita grex (Sir. 10:2), in the sense of this proverb of Solomon.
