Bible Commentary for Proverbs 11:20

Wesley's Notes for Proverbs 11:20


11:18 Worketh - A work which will deceive his expectation. Soweth - That worketh it with constancy, and diligence.

11:21 Though hand join - Though they are fortified against God's judgments by a numerous issue and kindred, and friends, and by mutual and strong combinations. The seed - Not only their persons, but their children.

11:22 So is a fair woman without discretion - Of beauty vain, of virtue void, What art thou in the sight of God? A slave to every base desire, A creature wallowing in the mire. Go, gaudy pageant of a day, Thy folly, with thy face display: Set all thy charms and graces out, And shew - the Jewel in thy snout!
