Proverbs 14:12
This one really stood out to me and hit me pretty hard in the way it relates to my journey. The commentary was good, especially the second half that never occured to me when I was reading the scripture. What do you think about it?

There is a path before each person that seems right, but it ends in death.

We have here an account of the way and end of a great many self-deluded souls. 1. Their way is seemingly fair: It seems right to themselves; they please themselves with a fancy that they are as they should be, that their opinions and practices are good, and such as will bear them out. The way of ignorance and carelessness, the way of worldliness and earthly-mindedness, the way of sensuality and flesh-pleasing, seem right to those that walk in them, much more the way of hypocrisy in religion, external performances, partial reformations, and blind zeal; this they imagine will bring them to heaven; they flatter themselves in their own eyes that all will be well at last. 2. Their end is really fearful, and the more so for their mistake: It is the ways of death, eternal death; their iniquity will certainly be their ruin, and they will perish with a lie in their right hand. Self-deceivers will prove in the end self-destroyers.

Pretty powerful stuff, Tauna. What commentary is this from? Sounds a little like Matthew Henry or Jamieson Fausset Brown.

I like them both a lot.

Matthew Henry - it's the best one I've found so far on Studylight.org. I'll try the other one you mentioned too.
