Proverbs 8:2

Proverbs 8:2

She standeth in the top of high places
To be both seen and heard, for which reason Christ went up into a mountain and preached, ( Matthew 5:1 ) ; by the way;
the roadside, to instruct and direct passengers as they go along, to show them the right way, and caution them against taking wrong ways; so did Christ, ( Matthew 16:6 ) ( 22:16 ) ; in the places of the paths;
or, "between the paths" F19; where more ways than one met together, and so difficult to know which was the right path to take; here Christ stands in the ministry of the word to direct, and says, "this is the way, walk ye in it", ( Isaiah 30:21 ) ; and as there are many ways which are proposed to men to walk in, some of open profaneness and impiety, and others that have a show of religion and devotion, but both lead men wrong; the ministers of Christ show, and he by them, the way of salvation, and how to avoid such as lead to destruction, ( Acts 16:17 ) .
