Proverbs 27:18 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

ערום appears to lean on חכם.

The prudent man seeth the misfortune, hideth himself;

The simple pass on, suffer injury.

equals Proverbs 22:3, where וּפתיים for פּתאים, ונסתּר for נסתּר, and ונענשׁו&#

(Note: The second Munach is at Proverbs 22:3, as well as here, according to the rule Proverbs 18:4 of the Accentuationssystem, the transformation of the Dechi, and preserves its value of interpunction; the Legarmeh of ערום is, however, a disjunctive of less force than Dechi, so that thus the sequence of the accents denotes that ערום ראה רעה is a clause related to ונסתר as a hypothetical antecedent: if the prudent sees the calamity, then he hides himself from it. This syntactic relation is tenable at Proverbs 22:3, but not here at Proverbs 27:12. Here, at least, ערום would be better with Rebia, to which the following Dechi would subordinate itself. The prudent seeth the evil, concealeth himself; or also, prudent is he who sees the evil, hides himself. For of two disjunctives before Athnach, the first, according as it is greater or less than the second, retains either Legarmeh (e.g., Psalm 1:5; Psalm 86:12; Psalm 88:14; Psalm 109:14) or Rebia (Proverbs 12:2, Psalm 25:2; Psalm 69:9; Psalm 146:5).)

as to time.
