    Clarke's Commentary on Proverbs 29:27

    And he that is upright in the way - "But as for those that be in the right waye, the wicked hate them." - Coverdale.

    To this verse the Vulgate adds the following: Verbum custodiens filius extra perditionem erit; "The son that keeps the word shall not fall into perdition." This is not in all copies of the Vulgate: but it was in that from which my old MS. Bible was made, where it is thus translated: The sone keping the worde schal ben out of perdicyon. I believe verbum here is intended for the Divine word; the revelation from God.
