CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
There is great glory - Men array themselves in festive apparel, and show their joy conspicuously.
A man is hidden - Better, men hide themselves, they shrink and cower for fear, and yet are hunted out.
"He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy." Proverbs 28:13. The conditions of obtaining mercy of God are simple and just and reasonable. The Lord does not require us to do some grievous thing in order that we may have the forgiveness of sin. We need not make long and wearisome pilgrimages, or perform painful penances, to commend our souls to the God of heaven or to expiate our transgression; but he that confesseth and forsaketh his sin …
Ellen Gould White—Steps to Christ
When it goes well with the righteous, the city rejoices, And when the wicked perish, there is joyful shouting.
When the wicked rise, men hide themselves; But when they perish, the righteous increase.
When the righteous increase, the people rejoice, But when a wicked man rules, people groan.
There is an evil I have seen under the sun, like an error which goes forth from the ruler--
folly is set in many exalted places while rich men sit in humble places.
