Proverbs 31:28 Parallel
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Her children arise up, and call her blessed -

20. She considers a good education next to Divine influence; and she knows also that if she train up a child in the way he should go, when he is old he will not depart from it.

1. Her children are well bred; they rise up and pay due respect.

C.H. Spurgeon—Sermons on Proverbs

Many specimens of the so-called Wisdom Literature are preserved for us in the book of Proverbs, for its contents are by no means confined to what we call proverbs.
