15 Whose ways are crooked, and they froward in their paths:
15 men whose paths are crooked, and who are devious in their ways.

Proverbs 2:15 Meaning and Commentary

Proverbs 2:15

Whose ways [are] crooked
Which swerve from and are not agreeably to the rule of the divine word, either the law of God or the Gospel of Christ; sin is an aberration, a straying from the rule of God's word, a transgression of his law; and a walk in it is unbecoming the Gospel of Christ; it has many serpentine windings and turnings in it; full of distortions and excursions, and many retrograde actions; see ( Psalms 125:5 ) ( Isaiah 59:8 ) ; and [they] froward in their paths;
declining here and there, sometimes going one way and sometimes another, but always following that which is evil, and resolute to continue therein.

Proverbs 2:15 In-Context

13 who have left the straight paths to walk in dark ways,
14 who delight in doing wrong and rejoice in the perverseness of evil,
15 whose paths are crooked and who are devious in their ways.
16 Wisdom will save you also from the adulterous woman, from the wayward woman with her seductive words,
17 who has left the partner of her youth and ignored the covenant she made before God.
