Proverbs 6:18 Meaning and Commentary

Proverbs 6:18

An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations
Or, "thoughts of wickedness" F5; which are framed and formed in the heart: and this being the source and fountain of all wickedness, is placed in the midst of these hateful and abominable things; (See Gill on Proverbs 6:14); evil thoughts and designs, both against God and men, are intended, which are forged and fabricated in the wicked heart of man; and may respect the depths of Satan in the antichristian beast of Rome, ( Revelation 2:24 ) ; feet that be swift in running to mischief;
to commit all manner of sin with greediness, especially murder; see ( Proverbs 1:16 ) .


F5 (Nwa twbvxm) "cogitationes iniquitatis", Montanus; "cogitationes vanitatis", Cocceius.

Proverbs 6:18 In-Context

16 Six things the Lord hates; in fact, seven are detestable to Him:
17 arrogant eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood,
18 a heart that plots wicked schemes, feet eager to run to evil,
19 a lying witness who gives false testimony, and one who stirs up trouble among brothers.
20 My son, keep your father's command, and don't reject your mother's teaching.
