    Clarke's Commentary on Proverbs 7:20

    He hath taken - Literally, "The money bag he hath taken in his hand." He is gone a journey of itinerant merchandising. This seems to be what is intended.

    And will come home at the day appointed - ליום הכסא leyom hakkase, the time fixed for a return from such a journey. The Vulgate says, "at the full moon." The Targum, "the day of the assembly." In other words, He will return by the approaching festival.

    Wesley's Notes on Proverbs 7:20

    7:20 Hath taken - Which is an evidence that he designs to stay a considerable time. At the day - So that we need not fear any surprise.
