Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.
foolishness of man perverteth his way: and his heart fretteth against the LORD.
discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and it is his glory to pass over a transgression.
Smite a scorner, and the simple will beware: and reprove one that hath understanding, and he will understand knowledge.
Cease, my son, to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge.
New Defender's Study Bible Notes
19:5 A false witness. This warning is repeated, with one important modification in Proverbs 19:9. There are several other warnings in Proverbs against bearing false witness (Proverbs 6:19; 12:17; 14:5; 21:28; 25:18). The ninth commandment deals with this crime, and the final great warning against it is in Revelation 21:27 and 22:15. Jesus Christ is “the truth” and God’s “Word is truth” (John 14:6; 17:17), so God hates “a false witness that speaketh lies” (Proverbs 6:16,19).
19:18 Chasten thy son. See notes on Proverbs 13:24; 22:15; 23:14.
