Romans 3:16 Meaning and Commentary

Romans 3:16

Destruction and misery are in their ways.
] This passage also is to be found in ( Isaiah 59:7 ) , and may be understood either actively thus: all the ways they take, and methods they pursue, are to make their fellow creatures miserable, to ruin and destroy them; or passively, that by their sinful ways and vicious course of life, they themselves are brought to destruction and misery: the way they are walking in is, "the broad way, that leadeth to destruction", ( Matthew 7:13 ) ; the end of it, what it issues in, is eternal death, the destruction of the body and soul in hell, which will be attended with endless and inexpressible misery.
