Clarke's Commentary on Proverbs 19 :23

Barnes's Commentary on Proverbs 19 :23

Shall abide satisfied - Better, one that is satisfied hath a sure abiding-place. The word "abide" has, most probably, here as elsewhere, its original sense of "passing the night." Even in the hour of darkness he shall be free from fear.
