New Defender's Study Bible Notes
28:9 prayer shall be abomination. God desires men to pray, and delights in answering their prayers, but not when they knowingly question His Word. Men must believe God’s Word before they can expect Him to heed their words!
28:13 covereth his sins. That is, rationalizing his sin in order to avoid confessing it, where confession involves naming the particular sin.
28:13 forsaketh. “Forsaking” a sin includes not only giving it up but also actually “forgetting” it, so there is no longer even the desire for it.
28:22 evil eye. See note on Proverbs 23:6.
