Psalms 25:4

Show me your ways, O LORD; teach me your paths.
Read Chapter 25

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
4. "Let them be confounded who do vain things unrighteously." Let them be confounded who act unrighteously for the acquiring things that pass away. "Make Thy ways, O Lord, known to me, and teach me Thy paths" (ver. 4): not those which are broad, and lead the many to destruction; but Thy paths, narrow, and known to few, teach Thou me.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
All, is not expressed in Hebrew or some copies of the Septuagint. (Berthier) Cause. No one can have reason to do so. But those who injure their harmless brethren, are more reprehensible, (Haydock) and the psalmist foretells that they will be put to shame. (St. Jerome) This manner of praying frequently occurs in the psalms, to signify the event, and the approbation of the just. (Worthington) Shew. The forth verse ought to begin here with d, as in Hebrew. (Haydock) Paths. The mysterious ways of Providence, (Eusebius) or the law which is unknown to many, (St. Athanasius) and practised by still fewer. (Calmet)

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