Proverbs 4:26

Proverbs 4:26

Ponder the path of thy feet
Consider well what path it is, whether right or wrong; or weigh it in the balances of thought, as Aben Ezra; or rather in the balances of the word, and see whether it agrees with that or not. The Septuagint version is, "make straight paths for thy feet"; to which the author of the epistle to the Hebrews seems to have respect, ( Hebrews 12:13 ) ; and let all thy walls be established;
so as to walk on steadily, constantly, uniformly, and not be easily moved out of the ways of religion and truth. Or, "let all thy ways be prepared", or "directed", or "disposed" F3; according to the rule of the divine word. Some render it as a promise, "and all thy ways shall be established" F4; when care is taken to look well into them; see ( 2 Chronicles 20:20 ) .
