Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Proverbs 11:8

_ _ Perhaps the trouble prepared by the wicked, and which he inherits (compare Proverbs 11:6).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

Proverbs 11:8

_ _ As always in death, so sometimes in life, the righteous are remarkably favoured and the wicked crossed. 1. Good people are helped out of the distresses which they thought themselves lost in, and their feet are set in a large room, Psalms 66:12; Psalms 34:19. God has found out a way to deliver his people even when they have despaired and their enemies have triumphed, as if the wilderness had shut them in. 2. The wicked have fallen into the distresses which they thought themselves far from, nay, which they had been instrumental to bring the righteous into, so that they seem to come in their stead, as a ransom for the just. Mordecai is saved from the gallows, Daniel from the lion's den, and Peter from the prison; and their persecutors come in their stead. The Israelites are delivered out of the Red Sea and the Egyptians drowned in it. So precious are the saints in God's eye that he gives men for them, Isaiah 43:3, Isaiah 43:4.
