    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 25:12

    That feareth the Lord - Who has a proper apprehension of his holiness, justice, and truth; and who, at the same time, sees himself a fallen spirit, and a transgressor of God's holy law, and consequently under the curse. That is the person that truly and reverently fears God.

    Him shall he teach - Such a person has a teachable spirit.

    The way that he shall choose - The way that in the course of Providence he has chosen, as the way in which he is to gain things honest in the sight of all men; God will bless him in it, and give him as much earthly prosperity as may be useful to his soul in his secular vocation.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 25:12

    What man is he - Who is he. The statement in this verse is intended to include every man; or to be universal. Wherever one is found who has the character here referred to, or whoever he may be, of him what is here affirmed will be true, that God will lead him in the way that he shall choose.

    That feareth the Lord - That is, a true worshipper of Yahweh, or that is truly a pious man: Psalm 5:7. "Him shall he teach." He will guide, or instruct him. See Psalm 25:9.

    In the way that he shall choose - The way that the person ought to choose; or, in other words, in the right way. It is not the way that God shall choose, but the way that the pious person ought to choose: God will so instruct him that he shall find the true path.

    Wesley's Notes on Psalms 25:12
