Proverbs 1:31 Meaning and Commentary

Proverbs 1:31

Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way
Their evil ways; be punished according to their deserts, and receive the just reward of their iniquities; see ( Isaiah 3:10 Isaiah 3:11 ) ; and be filled with their own devices;
or "counsels" F7: their device and counsel was to put Christ to death; to deliver him to the Roman governor, that he might be crucified, as he was: and they afterwards had their bellyful of crucifixion, as the word F8 used signifies; such vast numbers of them were crucified by the Romans before the walls of the city, five hundred a day, and sometimes more; insomuch that room was needed for crosses, and crosses for bodies F9.

Proverbs 1:31 In-Context

29 since they hated knowledge and did not choose to fear the LORD.
30 Since they would not accept my advice and spurned my rebuke,
31 they will eat the fruit of their ways and be filled with the fruit of their schemes.
32 For the waywardness of the simple will kill them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them;
33 but whoever listens to me will live in safety and be at ease, without fear of harm.”
