Bible Verse Explanations and Resources


Proverbs 10:8

Adam Clarke
Bible Commentary

A prating fool shall fall - This clause is repeated in the tenth verse. The wise man will receive the commandment: but the shallow blabbing fool shall be cast down. See Proverbs 10:10.

Albert Barnes
Notes on the Whole Bible

A prating … fall - Better, as in the margin. Inward self-contained wisdom is contrasted with self-exposed folly.
