    Definitions for Proverbs 28:24

    Transgression - Wrong-doing; a violation of a law.

    Clarke's Commentary on Proverbs 28:24

    Whoso robbeth his father - The father's property is as much his own, in reference to the child, as that of the merest stronger. He who robs his parents is worse than a common robber; to the act of dishonesty and rapine he adds ingratitude, cruelty, and disobedience. Such a person is the compatriot of a destroyer; he may be considered as a murderer.

    Barnes' Notes on Proverbs 28:24

    Is the companion of a destroyer - i. e., he stands on the same footing as the open, lawless robber. Compare this with our Lord's teaching as to Corban Mark 7:10-13.

    Wesley's Notes on Proverbs 28:24
