Whether you turn to the right or to the left, you will hear a voice saying to you, "This is the way; walk in it."
This was our floor verse in college. It was painted in the middle section of our floor. I probably walked by it a million times. I haven't thought about it in awhile, but it came to mind tonight.
I never really noticed the first part. I always put emphasis on the last "This is the way" part. But maybe the emphasis is supposed to be on the first "Whether you turn.... you will hear..." Perhaps it means if a person is following God there are times in his/her life where either path that person takes will be okay with God. The main concern will be that he/she is walking with Him. The walking by faith is more important than the location/destination.
Of course I have not consulted any commentaries or the Hebrew or anything, so I hope I am not way off base with my thoughts here.
