    Clarke's Commentary on Proverbs 3:33

    The curse of the Lord - No godly people meet in such a house; nor is God ever an inmate there.

    But he blesseth the habitation of the just - He considers it as his own temple. There he is worshipped in spirit and in truth; and hence God makes it his dwelling-place.

    Barnes' Notes on Proverbs 3:33

    The thought, like that which appears in Zechariah 5:3-4, and pervades the tragedies of Greek drama, is of a curse, an Ate, dwelling in a house from generation to generation, the source of ever-recurring woes. There is, possibly, a contrast between the "house" or "palace" of the rich oppressor and the lowly shepherd's hut, the "sheep-cote" 2 Samuel 7:8 ennobled only by its upright inhabitants.

    Wesley's Notes on Proverbs 3:33

    3:33 The house - Not only upon his own person, but also upon his posterity.
