Definitions for Proverbs 2 :11

Clarke's Commentary on Proverbs 2 :11

Discretion shall preserve thee - מזמה mezimmah. See on Proverbs 1:4 (note). Here the word is taken in a good sense, a good device. The man invents purposes of good; and all his schemes, plans, and devices, have for their object God's glory and the good of man: he deviseth liberal things, and by liberal things he shall stand. Coverdale translates, "Then shall Counsel preserve thee." A very good translation, much better than the present.
