John 13:17 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
If ye know these things, happy, etc. - True happiness consists in the knowledge of God, and in obedience to him. A man is not happy because he knows much; but because he receives much of the Divine nature, and is, in all his conduct, conformed to the Divine will. "They who have read many books (says Menu) are more exalted than such as have seldom studied; they who retain what they have read, than forgetful readers; they who fully understand, than such as only remember; and they who perform their known duty, than such as barely know it. Sacred knowledge and devotedness to God are the means by which a man can arrive at beatitude." See Institutes of Menu, c. xii. Inst. 103, 104. For a heathen this saying is very remarkable.

Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint; but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom's instruction.
The LORD said to me, "Proclaim all these words in the towns of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem: 'Listen to the terms of this covenant and follow them.
"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.
He replied, "Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it."
For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God's sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous.
But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it--not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it--they will be blessed in what they do.
