The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleProverbs 8:8
All the words of my mouth [are] in righteousness…
righteousness" F24; are connected with it, are agreeable to it; are
righteous ones, consistent with righteousness, with the righteous
nature, will, and law of God: or "are concerning righteousness" F25 the
necessity of righteousness in order to eternal life; the insufficiency
of man's own righteousness to entitle to it; the need, worth, and
excellency of the righteousness of Christ for that purpose; and of the
propriety and usefulness of a life of righteousness and holiness, which
the grace of God instructs men in;
[there is] nothing froward or perverse in them;
that is contrary to
right reason, or to the law of God, or to the Scriptures of truth, or
to the analogy of faith; nor is there any contradiction in the
doctrines of the Gospel one to another, but an entire harmony and
uniformity in them; they are not "yea" and "nay".
