And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way, walk you in it, when you turn to the right hand…
"This is the way, walk ye in it."
1. A word of correction and reformation in case of miscarriage. It is very fitly said to those who wander and are out of the way, to bring them again into it.
2. A word of direction and instruction in case of ignorance.
3. A word of strengthening and confirmation in case of unsettledness. It is very suitably said to those who are doubtful and wavering and uncertain in themselves whether they be right in the way or no, to encourage them to persevere and go on in those good ways which they have made entrance upon.
Parallel VersesKJV: And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.
