Proverbs 1:24

Context

1:24 However, 1  because 2  I called but you refused to listen, 3 

because 4  I stretched out my hand 5  but no one paid attention,

Proverbs 1:29

Context

1:29 Because 6  they hated moral knowledge, 7 

and did not choose to fear the Lord, 8 

1 tn The term “however” does not appear in the Hebrew text, but is implied by the contrast between the offer in 1:23 and the accusation in 1:24-25. It is supplied in the translation for the sake of clarity.

2 tn The particle יַעַן (yaan, “because”) introduces a causal clause which forms part of an extended protasis; the apodosis is 1:26.

3 tn The phrase “to listen” does not appear in the Hebrew but is supplied in the translation for the sake of clarity.

4 tn The term “because” does not appear in this line but is implied by the parallelism; it is supplied in the translation for clarity and smoothness.

5 sn This expression is a metonymy of adjunct; it is a gesture that goes with the appeal for some to approach.

6 tn The causal particle תַּחַת כִּי (takhat ki, “for the reason that”) introduces a second accusation of sin and reason for punishment.

7 tn Heb “knowledge.” The noun דָעַת (daat, “knowledge”) refers to moral knowledge. See note on 1:7.

8 tn Heb “the fear of the Lord.” The noun is an objective genitive; the Lord is to be the object of fear. See note on 1:7.
