Psalm 25:18 Parallel
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The question: quisnam est vir, which resembles Psalm 34:13; Psalm 107:43; Isaiah 50:10, is only propounded in order to draw attention to the person who bears the character described, and then to state what such an one has to expect. In prose we should have a relative antecedent clause instead, viz., qui (quisquis) talis est qui Dominum vereatur.

(Note: The verb ver-eri, which signifies "to guard one's self, defend one's self from anything" according to its radical notion, has nothing to do with ירא (ורא).)

The attributive יבהר, (viam) quam eligat (cf. Isaiah 48:17), might also be referred to God: in which He takes delight (lxx); but parallels like Psalm 119:30, Psalm 119:173, favour the rendering: which he should choose. Among all the blessings which fall to the lot of him who fears God, the first place is given to this, that God raises him above the vacillation and hesitancy of human opinion.
