Proverbs 27:24 Parallel
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The following three proverbs are connected with 17 in their similarity of form: -

18 Whosoever watcheth the fig-tree will enjoy its fruit;

     And he that hath regard to his master attaineth to honour.

The first member is, as in Proverbs 27:17, only the means of contemplating the second; as faithful care of the tree has fruit for a reward, so faithful regard for one's master, honour; נצר is used as at Isaiah 27:3, שׁמר as at Hosea 4:10, etc. - the proverb is valid in the case of any kind of master up to the Lord of lords. The fig-tree presented itself, as Heidenheim remarks, as an appropriate figure; because in the course of several years' training it brings forth its fruit, which the language of the Mishna distinguishes as פגין, unripe, בוחל, half ripe, and צמל, fully ripe. To fruit in the first line corresponds honour in the second, which the faithful and attentive servant attains unto first on the part of his master, and then also from society in general.
