5 The wise prevail through great power, and those who have knowledge muster their strength.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Proverbs 24:5

Commentary on Proverbs 24:3-6

(Read Proverbs 24:3-6)

Piety and prudence in outward affairs, both go together to complete a wise man. By knowledge the soul is filled with the graces and comforts of the spirit, those precious and pleasant riches. The spirit is strengthened for the spiritual work and the spiritual warfare, by true wisdom.
