O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

10:23 man that walketh. No matter how intelligent, strong, or rich a man may be (note Jeremiah 9:23-24), he cannot control his own destiny, or even make reliable decisions day by day. If his “way” is to point toward the eternal ministry God had planned for him, he must continually seek and follow God’s leading. “Man’s goings are of the LORD; how can a man then understand his own way?” (Proverbs 20:24). “The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and He delighteth in his way” (Psalm 37:23).
