New Defender's Study Bible Notes
27:1 thou knowest not. A believer should keep short accounts. “Now is the day of salvation” (II Corinthians 6:2). Our lives are “a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away” (James 4:14). It is vital that we be “redeeming the time, because the days are evil” (Ephesians 5:16).
27:12 foreseeth the evil. See note on Proverbs 22:3.
27:20 Hell and destruction. “Hell and destruction” are sheol and abaddon in Hebrew. See note on Proverbs 15:11.
27:21 fining. See Proverbs 17:3.
