Proverbs 14:14 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways -
1. Who is the backslider? סוג sug.
1. The man who once walked in the ways of religion, but has withdrawn from them.
2. The man who once fought manfully against the world, the devil, and the flesh; but has retreated from the battle, or joined the enemy.
3. The man who once belonged to the congregation of the saints, but is now removed from them, and is set down in the synagogue of Satan.
2. But who is the backslider in Heart?
1. Not he who was surprised and overcome by the power of temptation, and the weakness of his own heart.
2. But he who drinks down iniquity with greediness.
3. Who gives cheerful way to the bent of his own nature, and now delights in fulfilling the lusts of the flesh and of the mind.
4. Who loves sin as before he loved godliness.
3. What are his own ways? Folly, sin, disappointment, and death; with the apprehension of the wrath of God, and the sharp twingings of a guilty conscience.
4. What is implied in being filled with his own ways? Having his soul saturated with folly, sin, and disappointment. At last ending here below in death, and then commencing an eternal existence where the fire is not quenched, and under the influence of that worm that never dieth. Alas, alas! who may abide when God doeth this?
And a good man shall be satisfied from himself -
1. Who is the good man? (איש טוב ish tob).

Better trifle with the pestilence and expose one's self to the plague than to discount the blighting effects of sin. And, again, "The soul that sinneth it shall die" (Ezekiel 18:4). From this clear statement of the word of God there is no escape. Or, again, "Our …

The Intercession of Christ
He loved to pronounce a curse-- may it come back on him. He found no pleasure in blessing-- may it be far from him.
they will eat the fruit of their ways and be filled with the fruit of their schemes.
If you are wise, your wisdom will reward you; if you are a mocker, you alone will suffer.
From the fruit of their lips people are filled with good things, and the work of their hands brings them reward.
No harm overtakes the righteous, but the wicked have their fill of trouble.
The simple believe anything, but the prudent give thought to their steps.
From the fruit of their mouth a person's stomach is filled; with the harvest of their lips they are satisfied.
