Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Proverbs 19:16

_ _ (Compare Proverbs 10:17; Proverbs 13:13).

_ _ despiseth ... ways — opposed to keeping or observing, neglects (Proverbs 16:17) (as unworthy of regard) his moral conduct.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

Proverbs 19:16

_ _ Here is, 1. The happiness of those that walk circumspectly. Those that make conscience of keeping the commandment in every thing, that live by rule, as becomes servants and patients, keep their own souls; they secure their present peace and future bliss, and provide every way well for themselves. If we keep God's word, God's word will keep us from every thing really hurtful. 2. The misery of those that live at large and never mind what they do: Those that despair their ways shall die, shall perish eternally; they are in the high road to ruin. With respect to those that are careless about the end of their ways, and never consider whither they are going, and about the rule of their ways, that will walk in the way of their hearts and after the course of the world (Ecclesiastes 11:9), that never consider what they have done nor what they are concerned to do, but walk at all adventures (Leviticus 26:21), right or wrong, it is all one to them — what can come of this but the greatest mischief?

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Proverbs 19:16

His ways — The commands of God.
