Proverbs 7:7


7:7 and I saw among the naive –

I discerned among the youths 1 

a young man 2  who lacked wisdom. 3 

Proverbs 9:4


9:4 “Whoever is naive, let him turn in here,”

she says 4  to those 5  who lack understanding. 6 

1 tn Heb “sons.”

2 tn Heb “lad” or “youth.”

3 tn Heb “heart.”

sn This young man who lacked wisdom is one of the simpletons, lacking keen judgment, one void of common sense (cf. NAB, NASB, NRSV, NLT) or understanding (cf. KJV, ASV). He is young, inexperienced, featherbrained (so D. Kidner, Proverbs [TOTC], 75).

4 tn Heb “lacking of heart she says to him.” The pronominal suffix is a resumptive pronoun, meaning, “she says to the lacking of heart.”

5 tn Heb “him.”

6 tn Heb “heart”; cf. NIV “to those who lack judgment.”
