Psalms 119:101

I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep your word.
Read Chapter 119

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
101. But what cometh next, doth not seem to apply to the Head, but to the Body: "I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I may keep Thy words" (ver. 101). For that Head of ours, the Saviour of the Body Himself, could not be borne by carnal lust into any evil way, so that it should be needful for Him to refrain His feet, as though they would go thither of their own accord; which we do, when we refrain our evil desires, which He had not, that they may not follow evil ways. For thus we are able to keep the word of God, if we "go not after our evil lusts," so that they attain unto the evils desired; but rather curb them with the spirit which lusteth against the flesh, that they may not drag us away, seduced and overthrown, through evil ways.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Every. We cannot follow both the broad and the narrow path. (Theodoret) (James ii. 10.)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
