9 The light of the righteous shines brightly, but the lamp of the wicked is snuffed out.
9 The light of the righteous rejoiceth: but the lamp
9 The light of the righteous rejoices, but the lamp of the wicked will be put out.
9 The lives of good people are brightly lit streets; the lives of the wicked are dark alleys.
9 The light of the righteous rejoices, But the lamp of the wicked will be put out.
9 The life of the godly is full of light and joy, but the light of the wicked will be snuffed out.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Proverbs 13:9
Commentary on Proverbs 13:9
(Read Proverbs 13:9)
The light of the righteous is as that of the sun, which may be eclipsed and clouded, but will continue: the Spirit is their Light, he gives a fulness of joy: that of the wicked is as a lamp of their own kindling, easily put out.
