34 Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Proverbs 3:34

Commentary on Proverbs 3:27-35

(Read Proverbs 3:27-35)

Our business is to observe the precepts of Christ, and to copy his example; to do justice, to love mercy, and to beware of covetousness; to be ready for every good work, avoiding needless strife, and bearing evils, if possible, rather than seeking redress by law. It will be found there is little got by striving. Let us not envy prosperous oppressors; far be it from the disciples of Christ to choose any of their ways. These truths may be despised by the covetous and luxurious, but everlasting contempt will be the portion of such scorners, while Divine favour is shown to the humble believer.
