He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints.
– Proverbs 2:8
To keep is to guard and to preserve is hedge about as with thorns. Paths and way both point to a road, or a way of travel. Not only does God give wisdom, but he keeps the way as well as those who walk in therein. Wisdom is not only thoughts about life, but the way of life. Solomon further emphasizes that wisdom is the way of life by speaking of the way “of his saints.”
