Proverbs 18 - Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary on the Bible

Proverbs 18:18

It was customary sometimes to refer matters to God, by casting lots, with solemn prayer. The profaning the lot, by using it in matters of diversion, or coveting what belongs to others, forms an objection to this now. (Pr 18:19)
