Proverbs 29:20

Context

29:20 Do you see someone 1  who is hasty in his words? 2 

There is more hope for a fool than for him. 3 

1 tn Heb “a man,” but there is no indication in the immediate context that this should be limited only to males.

2 sn The focus of this proverb is on someone who is hasty in his words. This is the person who does not stop to think, but acts on the spur of the moment. To speak before thinking is foolishness.

3 sn Rash speech cannot easily be remedied. The prospects for a fool are better (e.g., Prov 26:12).
