Proverbs 9:3 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The summons 32a, and its reason 32b, are repeated in these verses which follow:

33 "Hear instruction, and be wise,

     And withdraw not.

34 Blessed is the man who hears me,

     Watching daily at my gates,

     Waiting at the posts of my doors!

35 For whosoever findeth me has found life,

     And has obtained favour from Jahve;

36 And whosoever misseth me doeth wrong to himself;

     All they who hate me love death."

The imper. וחכמוּ, 33a (et sapite), is to be judged after Proverbs 4:4, וחיה, cf. the Chethı̂b, Proverbs 13:20; one sees this from the words ואל־תּפרעוּ which follow, to which, after Proverbs 15:32, as at Proverbs 4:13, to אל־תּרף, מוּסר is to be placed as object: and throw not to the winds (ne missam faciatis; vid., regarding פרע at Proverbs 1:25), viz., instruction (disciplinam).
