Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Proverbs 29:1

_ _ hardeneth ... neck — obstinately refuses counsel (2 Kings 17:14; Nehemiah 9:16).

_ _ destroyed — literally, “shivered” or “utterly broken to pieces.”

_ _ without remedy — literally, “without healing” or repairing.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

Proverbs 29:1

_ _ Here, 1. The obstinacy of many wicked people in a wicked way is to be greatly lamented. They are often reproved by parents and friends, by magistrates and ministers, by the providence of God and by their own consciences, have had their sins set in order before them and fair warning given them of the consequences of them, but all in vain; they harden their necks. Perhaps they fling away, and will not so much as give the reproof a patient hearing; or, if they do, yet they go on in the sins for which they are reproved; they will not bow their necks to the yoke, but are children of Belial; they refuse reproof (Proverbs 10:17), despise it (Proverbs 5:12), hate it, Proverbs 12:1. 2. The issue of this obstinacy is to be greatly dreaded: Those that go on in sin, in spite of admonition, shall be destroyed; those that will not be reformed must expect to be ruined; if the rods answer not the end, expect the axes. They shall be suddenly destroyed, in the midst of their security, and without remedy; they have sinned against the preventing remedy, and therefore let them not expect any recovering remedy. Hell is remediless destruction. They shall be destroyed, and no healing, so the word is. If God wounds, who can heal?
