Treasury of Scripture

A brutish man knows not; neither does a fool understand this.

a brutish

Psalm 32:9
Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee.

Psalm 73:22
So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee.

Psalm 94:8
Understand, ye brutish among the people: and ye fools, when will ye be wise?

a fool

Psalm 14:1

Psalm 49:10
For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others.

Psalm 75:4
I said unto the fools, Deal not foolishly: and to the wicked, Lift not up the horn:









(6) A brutish man.--The Hebrew is apparently from a root meaning "to eat," and so refers to the man of mere animal nature, who lives for his appetites.

Fool.--From root meaning "fat," hence "gross," "stupid."

In the one case the moral sense has not come into play at all, in the other it is overgrown by sensuality, so that spiritual discernment, insight into the glories of the Divine mind, is impossible.

Verse 6. - A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this. A rude, uncultivated man has no conception of the wonderful depth of God's thoughts - the marvellousness of those counsels which underlie the general scheme of things, and make it what it is (comp. Romans 11:33, 34).
