16 for though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again, but the wicked stumble when calamity strikes.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Proverbs 24:16

Commentary on Proverbs 24:15-16

(Read Proverbs 24:15-16)

The sincere soul falls as a traveller may do, by stumbling at some stone in his path; but gets up, and goes on his way with more care and speed. This is rather to be understood of falls into affliction, than falls into actual sin.
