New Defender's Study Bible Notes
10:1 a little folly. It is often true that a seemingly minor sin by an otherwise wise, honorable, and godly leader can lead to serious consequences, as in the case of Noah relaxing with wine (Genesis 9:20-27) and Moses smiting the rock (Numbers 20:7-12). We need to “be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil…walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (I Peter 5:8).
10:2 heart is at his right hand. This proverb notes that a wise man is strong of heart, contrasting with the faint heart of a fool.
10:16 eat in the morning. When the leaders of a nation spend time and energy at all-night feasting and revelry, the nation itself is in great peril.
