    Barnes' Notes on Proverbs 14:33

    Omit "that which is." "Wisdom" is the subject of both clauses. She is "made nown," i. e., by the very force of contrast, in the midst of fools; or she is reserved and reticent in the one, noisy and boastful in the other. The Septuagint and some other versions get over the difficulty, by reading "Wisdom is not made known."

    Wesley's Notes on Proverbs 14:33

    14:33 Resteth - Is laid up and hid there. In the midst - In the heart. Made known - They will publish in all times and companies.
