Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Proverbs 28:12

_ _ great glory — or, cause for it to a people, for the righteous rejoice in good, and righteousness exalts a nation (Proverbs 14:34).

_ _ a man ... hidden — that is, the good retire, or all kinds try to escape a wicked rule.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

Proverbs 28:12

_ _ Note, 1. The comfort of the people of God is the honour of the nation in which they live. There is a great glory dwelling in the land when the righteous do rejoice, when they have their liberty, the free exercise of their religion, and are not persecuted, when the government countenances them and speaks comfortably to them, when they prosper and grow rich, and, much more, when they are preferred and employed and have power put into their hands. 2. The advancement of the wicked is the eclipsing of the beauty of a nation: When the wicked rise and get head they make head against all that is sacred, and then a man is hidden, a good man is thrust into obscurity, is necessitated to abscond for his own safety; corruptions prevail so generally that, as in Elijah's time, there seem to be no good men left, the wicked walk so thickly on every side.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Proverbs 28:12

Rejoice — Are promoted. Glory — In that common — wealth. Rise — Are advanced to authority. Hidden — Wise and good men, who only are worthy of the name of men, withdraw themselves into obscure places.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes
