Proverbs 1:24-25

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,

1:25 because 6  you neglected 7  all my advice,

and did not comply 8  with my rebuke,

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 Heb “and.”

7 tn The verb III פָּרַע means “to let go; to let alone” (BDB 828 s.v.). It can refer to unkempt hair of the head (Lev 10:6) or lack of moral restraint: “to let things run free” (Exod 32:25; Prov 28:19). Here it means “to avoid, neglect” the offer of wisdom (BDB 829 s.v. 2).

8 tn The verbs are characteristic perfects or indefinite pasts. For the word “comply, consent,” see 1:20.
