Commentary on Proverbs 12:11

(Read Proverbs 12:11)

It is men's wisdom to mind their business, and follow an honest calling. But it is folly to neglect business; and the grace of God teaches men to disdain nothing but sin.

27 The lazy do not roast[1] any game, but the diligent feed on the riches of the hunt.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Proverbs 12:27

Commentary on Proverbs 12:27

(Read Proverbs 12:27)

The slothful man makes no good use of the advantages Providence puts in his way, and has no comfort in them. The substance of a diligent man, though not great, does good to him and his family. He sees that God gives it to him in answer to prayer.
