Bible Verse Explanations and Resources


Proverbs 28:18

Adam Clarke
Bible Commentary

Shall fall at once - Shall fall without resource, altogether.

Albert Barnes
Notes on the Whole Bible

In his ways - Rather “in his double ways” (as in Proverbs 28:6). The evil of vacillation rather than that of craft, the want of the one guiding principle of right, is contrasted with the straightforwardness of the man that “walketh uprightly.”

Shall fall at once - Better, shall fall in one of them (his ways). The attempt to combine incompatibilities is sure to fail. Men cannot serve God and Mammon.
