Clarke's Commentary on Proverbs 2 :7

He layeth up sound wisdom - תושיה tushiyah. We have met with this word in Job; see Job 5:12; Job 6:13; Job 11:6; Job 12:16. See especially the note on Job 11:6 (note), where the different acceptations of the word are given.

Coverdale translates, "He preserveth the welfare of the righteous." It is difficult to find, in any language, a term proper to express the original meaning of the word; its seems to mean generally the essence or substance of a thing, The thing itself - that which is chief of its kind. He layeth up What Is Essential for the righteous.

Barnes's Commentary on Proverbs 2 :7

Sound wisdom - "Soundness," an idea which passes on into that of health and safety. Compare "sound doctrine" in 1 Timothy 1:10; 2 Timothy 4:3.
