Proverbs 30:20

Albert Barnes
Notes on the Whole Bible
Verses 18-20

Another enigma. The four things of Proverbs 30:16 agreed in the common point of insatiableness; the four now mentioned agree in this, that they leave no trace behind them.

Proverbs 30:19

The way of a man with a maid - The act of sin leaves no outward mark upon the sinners.

Matthew Henry
Concise Bible Commentary
