Today in Proverbs

Proverbs 28:3 NKJV A poor man who oppresses the poor is like a driving rain which leaves no food.

28:3. The Hebrew word for ruler in this verse differs from the word for “rulers” in verse 2. In fact “ruler” (v. 3) translates two words which are literally, “a strong man” (geḇer) who is destitute or hungry (rāš; cf. NIV marg.; vv. 6, 27). When a man in need oppresses the poor (dal, “feeble, helpless, weak”; see comments on 10:15), he opposes people who in some ways are like him, who could be his friends. Such cruelty and perversion of justice are like a hard rain which destroys rather than nourishes crops.
