HAYDOCK CATHOLIC BIBLE COMMENTARY ON THE OLD TESTAMENT



PROVERBS 28

 

CHAPTER XXVIII.

 

Ver. 1.  Pursueth.  "A crime is its own punishment."  Senec. ep. 93.  Lev. xxvi. 36. --- Dread.  Of any thing terrestrial, as long as the object of his love is not attacked.  Rom. viii. 35.

 

Ver. 2.  Princes.  Who each contend for the sovereign power.  C.

 

Ver. 8.  Poor.  It seldom happens that the unjust leave their riches to their children.  C. xiii. 22.  Job xxvii. 16.

 

Ver. 9.  His.  Sept. "he rendereth his prayer abominable."

 

Ver. 13.  Mercy.  This is true repentance, which enjoins, "not only to bewail past sins, but also to amend."  S. Amb. ii. Pen. v. --- Sacramental confession was not required of the Jews, but they confessed their sins, when they laid their hands on the victim, &c.  Lev. iv. and v.  C.

 

Ver. 16.  Prudence.  Sept. "riches."  Poverty is a great temptation to people in authority, more than avarice itself.  C.

 

Ver. 20.  Innocent.  Unpunished, if he employ fraud, v. 22.  c. xiii. 21.

 

Ver. 21.  Forsaketh.  Heb. "oppresseth (Sept. selleth) a man."  C. --- Neither small nor great bribes must be taken.  Justinian.

 

Ver. 22.  Poverty.  Sept. "the merciful shall have power over him."  v. 8.  H.

 

Ver. 28.  Men.  Sept. "the just groan," and all are under "apprehensions."  C.
