For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he ponders all his paths.
I have kept your precepts and your testimonies: for all my ways are before you.
When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then you knew my path. In the way in which I walked have they secretly laid a snare for me.
A man's steps are of the LORD; how can a man then understand his own way?
But he knows the way that I take: when he has tested me, I shall come forth as gold.
O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man who walks to direct his steps.
Now therefore thus says the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways.
Thus says the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways.
I thought on my ways, and turned my feet unto your testimonies.
I have declared my ways, and you heard me: teach me your statutes.
You search out my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways.
The way of an eagle in the air; the way of a serpent upon a rock; the way of a ship in the midst of the sea; and the way of a man with a maiden.
Therefore have I poured out my indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, says the Lord GOD.
I the LORD have spoken it: it shall come to pass, and I will do it; I will not go back, neither will I spare, neither will I relent; according to your ways, and according to your doings, shall they judge you, says the Lord GOD.
And I scattered them among the nations, and they were dispersed through the countries: according to their way and according to their doings I judged them.
Therefore, behold, I will hedge up your way with thorns, and make a wall, so that she shall not find her paths.
And he said unto him, Friend, how came you in here not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
