Bible Notes

"The thoughts of the righteous are right: but the counsels of the wicked are deceit" (Prov. 12:5)—The word "mishpat," here rendered "right," is literally "judgment"; hence in Bagster's rendering of the Septua-gint we find: "The thoughts of the righteous are true judgments; but ungodly men devise deceits." Moffatt translates: "The aims of a good man are honourable: the plans of a bad man are underhand;" while Kent suggests: "The plans of righteous men are just; the designs of wicked men are deceitful."

"The Lord knoweth the days of the upright" (Ps. 37:18)—The Hebrew term translated "upright" is ordinarily rendered "perfect," while "simple" and "innocent" are other possible translations. Thus, while Moffatt has: "The fortunes of the upright are in the Eternal's care;" Smith reads: "The Lord knows the days of the innocent;" and the Revised Version, "the days of the perfect."
