SEV Biblia, Chapter 16:17 ¬∂ El camino de los rectos es apartarse del mal; el que guarda su camino guarda su alma.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 16:17 Verse 17. The highway of the upright ] The upright man is ever departing from evil; this is his common road: and by keeping on in this way, his soul is preserved.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 17. The highway of the upright [is] to depart from evil , etc.] Upright persons, such who are upright in heart, and walk uprightly; these walk in the highway of holiness, in which men, though fools, shall not err; in the Kingís highway, the highway of the King of kings; in the plain beaten path of Godís commandments; and so shun the bypaths of sin, and abstain from all appearance of it: this is their common constant course of life; they are studiously concerned to walk herein, and take delight in so doing; whereby they escape many evils others fall into; he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul , that keeps on in his way, the way in which the upright walk; whose eyes look right on, and his eyelids straight before him; who ponders the path of his feet, and turns neither to the right hand nor the left; who walks circumspectly and carefully; observes the road he is in, to keep in it, and not go out of it; such a man preserves his soul from many snares and temptations, troubles, dangers, and evils, which he would be otherwise liable to. Here the Masorites put the word yxj , signifying that this is the half or middle of the book.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 17 - A sincerely religious man keeps at a distance from every appearance of evil. Happy is the man that walks in Christ, and is led by the Spiri of Christ.
