    Clarke's Commentary on Proverbs 3:17

    Her ways are ways of pleasantness - These blessings of true religion require little comment. They are well expressed by the poet in the following elegant verses: -

    "Wisdom Divine! Who tells the price

    Of Wisdom's costly merchandise?

    Wisdom to silver we prefer,

    And gold is dross compared to her.

    Her hands are fill'd with length of days,

    True riches, and immortal praise;

    Riches of Christ, on all bestow'd,

    And honor that descends from God.

    To purest joys she all invites,

    Chaste, holy, spiritual delights;

    Her ways are ways of pleasantness,

    And all her flowery paths are peace.

    Happy the man that finds the grace,

    continued...

    Barnes' Notes on Proverbs 3:17

    "Ways" and "paths" describe the two kinds of roads, the "highway" and the "byway." In both these he who was guided by Wisdom would walk securely.
