Definitions for Proverbs 24 :20

Clarke's Commentary on Proverbs 24 :20

For there shall be no reboard to the evil man - אחרית acharith. There shall not be the future state of blessedness to the wicked. See the note on Proverbs 24:14 (note). His candle shall be put out; his prosperity shall finally cease, or he shall have no posterity. Some have thought that this text intimates the annihilation of sinners; but it refers not to being, but to the state or condition of that being. The wicked shall be; but they shall not be Happy.

Barnes' Commentary on Proverbs 24 :20

No reward - literally, "no future," no life worthy to be called life, no blessing.

Wesley's Commentary on Proverbs 24 :20

24:20 No reward - All his happiness shall quickly and eternally perish. The candle - All their comfort and glory shall cease.
