Bible Verse Explanations and Resources


Proverbs 10:17

Adam Clarke
Bible Commentary

He is in the way of life - The truly religious man accumulates knowledge that he may the better know how to live to God, and do most good among men.

Albert Barnes
Notes on the Whole Bible

literally, A way of life is he that keepeth instruction. The verb “erreth” is better rendered in the margin. The influence for good or evil spreads beyond the man himself.

Ellen G. White
The Publishing Ministry, 79.2

Respect for Older Workers—In the office of publications at Battle Creek, a spirit is cherished that is an offense to God; there is selfishness that God cannot tolerate; there is hardness of heart; a lack of love and meekness, and it is manifested in words and deportment that are entirely unchristian. The Lord has reproved the sins; He has set them before the erring, and they still are cherished. PM 79.2
