Part of the ongoing Verse Quick Reference project.
Pro 28:5 Evil men do not understand justice, but those who seek the LORD understand it completely.
Proverbs 28:5 can alternatively be rendered:
Pro 28:5 Evil men do not understand justice, But those who seek the LORD understand all.
The phrase “understands all” is found in similar passages concerning God’s knowledge.
Psa 33:15 he who fashions the hearts of them all and observes [understands] all their deeds.
1Ch 28:9 …for the LORD searches all hearts and understands every plan and thought…
While Proverbs 28:5 is naturally read in a contextually limited manner, parallel phrases, applied to God are taken as prooftexts of particular definitions of omniscience.
