Definitions for Proverbs 7 :19

Clarke's Commentary on Proverbs 7 :19

For the good man - Literally, "For the man is not in his house."

Barnes's Commentary on Proverbs 7 :19

The reference to the husband is probably a blind. The use of the word "goodman" is due to the wish of the English translators to give a colloquial character to this part of their Version. The Hebrew is merely "the man." A touch of scorn may be noticed in the form of speech: not "my husband," but simply "the man."
