NET © Notes

tn The noun “instruction” does not appear in the Hebrew text, but is supplied in the translation.

sn The parallelism shows what Proverbs will repeatedly stress, that the wise person is the righteous person.

tn The Hiphil verb normally means “to cause to know, make known”; but here the context suggests “to teach” (so many English versions).

tn The term “his” does not appear in the Hebrew text, but is supplied for the sake of smoothness and clarity.
