Mishlei 26:9 - A Thorn in the Hand of a Drunkard (Part 2)

חוֹחַ עָלָה בְיַד שִׁכּוֹר וּמָשָׁל בְּפִי כְסִילִים:

This morning (1/13/22), in our Morning Mishlei shiur, we learned the Meiri's commentary on this entire set of pesukim (26:6-9). He offered a number of different interpretations, some of which corresponded to what we had said in the past, and others of which were new. We ended off by starting to learn the Malbim's commentary on 26:9-10, but didn't have much time to get into 10. 

Note: Our morning Mishlei shiur will be on hiatus until sometime in the first week of February.
