"Health to all their flesh" (Prov. 4:22)—The Hebrew word "marpe," translated "health," can also be rendered "healing or cure" (Brown, Driver, Briggs: Hebrew Lexicon, p. 951). Kent suggests: "healing to all their being;" and Moffatt: "health to all their being;" while Smith prefers to retain: "health to all their flesh." A literal translation as given in the Septuagint would be: "healing to all flesh;" and since the phrase "all flesh" was regularly used as an idiomatic expression for "all living beings or mankind" (Brown, etc., op. cit., p. 142; cf. Gen. 6:17), we should be justified in rendering: "healing to all mankind" or "to all living beings."
"Keep thy heart with all diligence" (Prov. 4:23)—A more literal rendering of the Hebrew would be: "Watch your heart more than all that you guard." Hence Moffatt renders: "Guard above all things, guard your inner self;" and Kent: "Guard your heart above all things;" while Delitzsch has: "Above all other things that are to be guarded, keep thy heart."
"For out of it are the issues of life" (Prov. 4:23)—The term rendered "issues" is literally "outgoings," and so "sources" (Brown, etc., op. cit., p. 426). Hence Kent has: "the sources of life;" and Smith: "the well-springs of life."
