Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Proverbs 28:24

_ _ (Compare Matthew 15:4-6). Such, though heirs, are virtually thieves, to be ranked with highwaymen.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

Proverbs 28:24

_ _ As Christ shows the absurdity and wickedness of those children who think it is no duty, in some cases, to maintain their parents (Matthew 15:5), so Solomon here shows the absurdity and wickedness of those who think it is no sin to rob their parents, either by force or secretly, by wheedling them or threatening them, or by wasting what they have, and (which is no better than robbing them) running into debt and leaving them to pay it. Now, 1. This is commonly made light of by untoward children; they say, “It is no transgression, for it will be our own shortly, our parents can well enough spare it, we have occasion for it, we cannot live as gentlemen upon the allowance our parents give us, it is too strait for us.” With such excuses as these they endeavour to shift off the conviction. But, 2. How lightly soever an ungoverned youth makes of it, it is really a very great sin; he that does it is the companion of a destroyer, no better than a robber on the highway. What wickedness will he scruple to commit who will rob his own parents?

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Proverbs 28:24

The same — Is a thief and robber.
