7 One who is full loathes honey from the comb, but to the hungry even what is bitter tastes sweet.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Proverbs 27:7

Commentary on Proverbs 27:7

(Read Proverbs 27:7)

The poor have a better relish of their enjoyments, and are often more thankful for them, than the rich. In like manner the proud and self-sufficient disdain the gospel; but those who hunger and thirst after righteousness, find comfort from the meanest book or sermon that testifies of Christ Jesus.
