Proverbs 8:13 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

כּי continues the reason (begun in Proverbs 8:6) for the Hearken! (cf. Proverbs 1:15-17; Proverbs 4:16.); so that this second reason is co-ordinated with the first (Fl.). Regarding אמת, vid., at Proverbs 3:3; הגה, here of the palate (cf. Psalm 37:30), as in Proverbs 15:28 of the heart, has not hitherto occurred. It signifies quiet inward meditation, as well as also (but only poetically) discourses going forth from it (vid., at Psalm 1:2). The contrary of truth, i.e., moral truth, is רשׁע, wickedness in words and principles - a segolate, which retains its Segol also in pausa, with the single exception of Ecclesiastes 3:16.
