|A man's own folly ruins his life, |
yet his heart rages against the LORD.
|The foolishness of man perverteth his way: and his heart fretteth against the LORD.|
|The foolishness of man ruins his way, |
And his heart rages against the LORD.
|Proverbs 19:3 |
How many times has a person wandered off in self-destructive folly, only to cry out to Yahweh for help to pull him out of his trouble? Time after time God may reach down in grace to extract a fool from his folly. But there is no guarantee that he will always do so.
