Bible Commentary for Proverbs 3:2

Wesley's Notes for Proverbs 3:2


3:1 My law - The law of God, which might be called his law, as the gospel is called Paul's gospel, #2Tim 2:8|, because delivered by him.

3:3 Mercy - Mercy denotes all benignity, charity, and readiness to do good to others: truth or faithfulness respects all those duties which we owe to God or man, which we have special obligation from the rules of justice. Bind them - Like a chain, wherewith persons adorn their necks. Table - In thy mind and heart, in which all God's commands are to be received and engraven.
