Malice and Envy.
25 There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
This we had before (ch. xiv. 12), but here it is repeated, as that which is very necessary to be thought of,
1. By way of caution to us all to take heed of deceiving ourselves in the great concerns of our souls by resting in that which seems right and is not really so, and, for the preventing of a self-delusion, to be impartial in self-examination and keep up a jealousy over ourselves.
2. By way of terror to those whose way is not right, is not as it should be, however it may seem to themselves or others; the end of it will certainly be death; to that it has a direct and certain tendency.
– Matthew Henry Commentary
