SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:15

¶ Las riquezas del rico son su ciudad fuerte; y el desmayo de los pobres es su pobreza.

Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 10:15

Verse 15. The rich man's
wealth is his strong city ] Behold a mystery in providence; there is not a rich man on earth but becomes such by means of the poor! Property comes from the labour of the poor, and the king himself is served of the field. How unjust, diabolically so, is it to despise or oppress those by whose labour all property is acquired! The destruction of the poor is their poverty. - A man in abject poverty never arises out of this pit. They have no nucleus about which property may aggregate. The poet spoke well: - Haud facile emergunt, quorum virtutibus obstat Res angusta domi.

"They rarely emerge from poverty, whose exertions are cramped by want at home."


John Gill's Bible Commentary

Ver. 15. The rich manís wealth [is] his strong city , etc.] What a fortified city is to persons in time of war, that is a rich manís wealth to him; by it he can defend himself from the injuries of others, and support himself and family in times of public calamity; for money is a defence, and answers all things, ( Ecclesiastes 7:12 10:19). Or his wealth is so in his own apprehension and conceit; he puts his trust and confidence in it, and thinks himself safe and secure by it; when he is trusting to uncertain riches, which will fail him; these may fly away from him in life, and leave him exposed to distress and danger; and, however, will not secure him at death from the wrath of God and everlasting destruction. Or he is lifted up with his riches, is in high spirits, and despises others; thinking himself safe, as in a strong castle, and fears nothing, distresses, diseases, or death; the destruction of the poor [is] their poverty : or their poverty is their consternation, as the word signifies, it frightens them; they, knowing their circumstances, are afraid of everybody and of every thing; not being able to defend themselves against their enemies, or support themselves in times of public calamity, as war, famine, or pestilence.

Matthew Henry Commentary

Verses 15 - This refers to the common mistakes both of rich and
poor, as to their outward condition. Rich people's wealth exposes them to many dangers while a poor man may live comfortably, if he is content, keeps a goo conscience, and lives by faith.
