    Definitions for Proverbs 10:7

    Blessed - Happy.

    Clarke's Commentary on Proverbs 10:7

    The memory of the just is blessed - Or, is a blessing.

    But the name of the wicked shall rot - This is another antithesis; but there are only two antithetic terms, for memory and name are synonymous - Lowth. The very name of the wicked is as offensive as putrid carrion.
