Mishlei 21:14 - Secret Gifts, Bribes, and Anger (Part 3)

מַתָּן בַּסֵּתֶר יִכְפֶּה אָף וְשֹׁחַד בַּחֵק חֵמָה עַזָּה:

This morning (12/22/21) we continued plumbing the depths of our pasuk. We began with some pshat interpretations from the Malbim and Radak, then analyzed the first of the Meiri's derech nistar explanations, and concluded by reading his second derech nistar explanation and a few midrashim which we didn't have time to analyze. This ended up being quite a rich pasuk (no pun intended)!
