Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Proverbs 28:10

_ _ (Compare Proverbs 26:27).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

Proverbs 28:10

_ _ Here is, 1. The doom of seducers, who attempt to draw good people, or those who profess to be such, into sin and mischief, who take pride in causing the righteous to go astray in an evil way, in drawing them into a snare, that they may insult over them. They shall not gain their point; it is impossible to deceive the elect. But they shall fall themselves into their own pit; and having been not only sinners, but tempters, not only unrighteous, but enemies to the righteous, their condemnation will be so much the greater, Matthew 23:14, Matthew 23:15. 2. The happiness of the sincere. They shall not only be preserved from the evil way which the wicked would decoy them into, but they shall have good things, the best things, in possession, the graces and comforts of God's Spirit, besides what they have in reversion.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Proverbs 28:10

Causeth — That by evil counsel, or example, or artifice, draws them into evil.
