BDBD is Proverbs 10:29-30

Joining these two verses brings forth one of the themes of proverbs. “The way of the LORD is a refuge (strength) for the righteous; they will never be uprooted. The way of the LORD is the ruin of those who do evil; they will not remain in the land.” The way in the Hebrew here is “derek” from the root word “darak” meaning literally “a road” and figuratively “a course of life or mode of action.” So this is the LORD Jesus’ course of life. In the first century, others called those who followed Jesus’ teaching as belonging to the Way. (Acts 9:2, 19:23, 22:4, 24:14,22)

Jesus used parables to help me understand how to live according to his course. He also used those who lived before him as examples of righteous living. The apostles who learned at his feet used direct speech when instructing the way of the LORD. Reading and thinking about Bible passages is guide posts on the way to live eternally. (Isaiah 35:8-9)

Jesus claimed in one of his parables, ““Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” (Matthew 7:13-14)

The destiny of walking the LORD’s way is set forth in Psalm 16:11, “You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.” Jesus clearly proclaimed, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.” (John 14:6-7)
