Proverbs 20: 24


#1

In The Book of Proverbs, Chapter 20 Verse 24 states:

Man's steps are from the Lord; how then, can a man understand his way?     

  Please explain.

#2

God has designed everything, even the very steps we take. It is all a great mystery to us. His divine providence is at work in ways we can’t even begin to understand. All we can do is to trust in God and His plans.


#3

Perhaps the Douay Rheims translation and commentary note from the Haydock Bible will help:Proverbs 20:24 *The steps of man are guided by the Lord: but who is the man that can understand his own way?

Commentary note: Ver. 24. Way? Jeremias 10:23. Independently of God, who can do any good? (Calmet)
