Proverbs 26:24

 

 

He who hates disguises it with his lips, But he lays up deceit in his heart.

John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

He that hateth dissembleth with his lips,.... He that bears a grudge in his mind, and retains hatred in his heart against any person, hides it all he can, till he has an opportunity of showing it as he would; he pretends a great deal of friendship with his lips, that his hatred might not be known; he would be thought to be a friend, when he is really an enemy; he does not choose as yet to make himself known what he is. Some render it to a sense the reverse, "the enemy", or "he that hateth, is known by his lips"F12ינכר "agnoscetur", Montanus, Vatablus; "cognoscetur", Tigurine version; "cognoscitur", Amama, so Luther. ; so the Targum, Vulgate Latin, and Syriac versions: if you carefully watch him, mark his words, and observe what he says, you will find out the hatred that lies in his heart; he cannot forbear saying something, at one time or another, which betrays the malignity of his mind;

and layeth up deceit within him; or, "thoughF13ו "quamvis", Luther. apud Gejerus, Baynus. he layeth up", &c. hides it as much as he can, yet it will show itself in some way or another.

Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible

dissembleth — though an unusual sense of the word (compare Margin), is allowable, and better suits the context, which sets forth hypocrisy.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

Proverbs 26:24 He that hateth dissembleth with his lips, and layeth up deceit within him;

Ver. 24. He that hateth dissembleth with his lips.] And so heaps sin upon sin, till he be transformed into a breathing devil. This is meant not so much of the passion of hatred as of the habit of it; when it hath wholly leavened the heart, and lies watching its opportunity of doing mischief. The devil is at inn with such, as Mr Bradford (a) phraseth it, and was as great a master, long before the Florentine secretary was born, as since.

Whedon's Commentary on the Bible

24. He that… dissembleth — This seems to be the counterpart of the preceding, and is rendered: “By his lips shall the hater be known, that he putteth deceit within him;” that is, that he cherishes it. — Gesenius. The hater, however smooth spoken, can hardly so dissemble as to escape detection. Most interpreters, however, follow the Authorized Version.
