Proverbs 15:28

Adam Clarke
Bible Commentary

The heart of the righteous studieth to answer - His tongue never runs before his wit, he never speaks rashly, and never unadvisedly; because he studies - ponders, his thoughts and his words.

Albert Barnes
Notes on the Whole Bible

Contrast the “studying” of the wise before he answers and the hasty babbling of the foolish. The teaching of our Lord Matthew 10:19 presents us with a different and higher precept, resting upon different conditions.
