21 The lips of the righteous nourish many, but fools die for lack of sense.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Proverbs 10:21

Commentary on Proverbs 10:20-21

(Read Proverbs 10:20-21)

The tongue of the just is sincere, freed from the dross of guile and evil design. Pious discourse is spiritual food to the needy. Fools die for want of a heart, so the word is; for want of thought.

22 The blessing of the Lord brings wealth, without painful toil for it.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Proverbs 10:22

Commentary on Proverbs 10:22

(Read Proverbs 10:22)

That wealth which is truly desirable, has no vexation of spirit in the enjoyment; no grief for the loss; no guilt by the abuse of it. What comes from the love of God, has the grace of God for its companion.
