Definitions for Proverbs 20 :24

Clarke's Commentary on Proverbs 20 :24

Man's goings are of the Lord - He, by his providence, governs all the great concerns of the world. Man often traverses these operations; but he does it to his own damage. An old writer quaintly says: "They who will carve for themselves shall cut their fingers."

Barnes's Commentary on Proverbs 20 :24

The order of a man's life is a mystery even to himself. He knows not where he is going, or for what God is educating him.

Wesley's Commentary on Proverbs 20 :24

20:24 His way - What the issue of his designs will be.
