Commentary
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

The answer to the question, "who can know it?" To himself a man's heart is an inscrutable mystery: God alone can fathom it.

Ways - Rather, way, his course of life. The "and" must be omitted, for the last clause explains what is meant "by man's way," when he comes before God for judgment. It is "the fruit," the final result "of his doings, i. e., his real character as formed by the acts and habits of his life.
