Verse-by-Verse Bible Commentary

Proverbs 2:15

 

 

Whose paths are crooked, And who are devious in their ways;

John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

Whose ways are crooked,.... Which swerve from and are not agreeably to the rule of the divine word, either the law of God or the Gospel of Christ; sin is an aberration, a straying from the rule of God's word, a transgression of his law; and a walk in it is unbecoming the Gospel of Christ; it has many serpentine windings and turnings in it; full of distortions and excursions, and many retrograde actions; see Psalm 125:5;

and they froward in their paths; declining here and there, sometimes going one way and sometimes another, but always following that which is evil, and resolute to continue therein.

crooked — tortuous, unprincipled.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

Proverbs 2:15 Whose ways [are] crooked, and [they] froward in their paths:

Ver. 15. Whose ways are crooked.] How justly may God say to such, as the crab in the fable did to the serpent, when he had given him his death’s wound for his crooked conditions, and then saw him stretch himself out straight, At oportuit sic vixisse: It is too late now, you should have lived so.

And who are froward.] Absurd, Aτοποι. [2 Thessalonians 3:2] Men made up of mere incongruities, solacising in opinion, speeches, actions, all.

Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible - Unabridged

Whose ways are crooked, and they froward in their paths:

Whose ways are crooked, and (they) froward in their paths. Rather, as the noun is feminine and the adjective masculine, 'Who are crooked in their ways.' Though once they were in "the paths of uprightness" (Proverbs 2:13), they go aside into their "crooked" and "perverse" ways (Psalms 125:5). They are now frowardnesses (i:e., nothing but frowardness, as Bayne explains the Hebrew), so that none can walk with them, and yet walk aright.
