Definitions for Proverbs 14 :30

Clarke's Commentary on Proverbs 14 :30

A sound heart is the life of the flesh - A healthy state of the blood, and a proper circulation of that stream of life, is the grand cause, in the hand of God, of health and longevity. If the heart be diseased, life cannot be long continued.

Barnes's Commentary on Proverbs 14 :30

Sound heart - literally, "heart of health," that in which all emotions and appetites are in a healthy equilibrium. The contrast with this is the envy which eats, like a consuming disease, into the very bones and marrow of a man's moral life.

Wesley's Commentary on Proverbs 14 :30

14:30 A sound heart - Free from envy and inordinate passions. Is life - Procures and maintains the health and vigour of the body.
