The fear of man brings a snare: but whoever puts his trust in the LORD shall be safe.
This is a deadly foe to a godly, consistent life. It stops many a one on the very threshold of the kingdom. It turns back many who seemed to run well.
1. The fear of man often leads to downright, positive sin.
2. The fear of man keeps many a lad from decision for Christ.
(G. Everard, M.A.)
Parallel VersesKJV: The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.
