Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk…
"That the soul be without knowledge, it is not good." A lamentable instance of this truth is exemplified in the preceding part of the chapter.
I. THE CHARACTER OF THE TEACHER. God, whose wisdom is infinite, is our only teacher; for whatever others we may possess, either in the works of nature, of providence, or of grace, originate entirely from His bounty.
II. THE SUBJECT OF INSTRUCTION. Two things are to be learned, namely, knowledge and doctrine; the one that we may know ourselves, the other that we may know God.
III. THE PERSONS TO BE TAUGHT. "Them that are weaned," etc. We must be like little children in humility of mind and teachableness of disposition.
(J. Wright, B. A.)
Parallel VersesKJV: Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.
