Proverbs 6:24 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The fourth characteristic is a deceitful heart. On חרשׁ, vid., Proverbs 6:14, Proverbs 3:29, and on אין, Proverbs 6:12. The fifth: feet running with haste to evil; לרעה as לרע in Isaiah 59:7, echoing the distich Proverbs 1:16, as here, 17b and 18b. The connection מהר לרוּץ, propere cucurrit (contrast אחר ל), is equivalent to רץ מהר.
