CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
16:9 Done foolishly - It is a foolish thing to lean on a broken reed, when we have the rock of ages to rely upon. Perfect - Upright and sincere, as thine is not. He was sincere in the general course of his life, but some particulars, whereof this is one, his heart did not perfectly cleave to God.
Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes, and he is the one to whom we are accountable.
1 Samuel 13:13
"How foolish!" Samuel exclaimed. "You have not kept the command the LORD your God gave you. Had you kept it, the LORD would have established your kingdom over Israel forever.
2 Samuel 24:10
But after he had taken the census, David's conscience began to bother him. And he said to the LORD, "I have sinned greatly by taking this census. Please forgive my guilt, LORD, for doing this foolish thing."
2 Chronicles 15:17
Although the pagan shrines were not removed from Israel, Asa's heart remained completely faithful throughout his life.
2 Chronicles 16:10

Doesn't he see everything I do and every step I take?
He made their hearts, so he understands everything they do.
