9 The light of the righteous shines brightly, but the lamp of the wicked is 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.
