Bible Notes

"All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the Lord weigheth the spirits" (Prov. 16:2)—The word which is here literally rendered "spirit" is used in Hebrew in a variety of senses, including "disposition, breath," or "spirit of the living, breathing thing" (Brown, Driver and Briggs: Hebrew Lexicon, pp. 924–926). Smith suggests: "All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes; but the Lord weighs the motives;" and Moffatt: "A man's ways seem all right to himself, but the Eternal has the verdict on his life."

"They killed the passover" (Mark 14:12)—Not only was the name "the passover" given to the sacred Jewish feast which commemorated Isarel's deliverance from Egypt (Ex. 12:43), but it was also applied at times, as in this verse, to the lamb which was sacrificed at this time.
