Greek Original:
Ὁδοῦ παρούσης τὴν ἀτραπὸν ζητεῖς: τὸ λεγόμενον. Ἀριστοφάνης Ἀναγύρῳ: ὅρμου παρόντος, τὴν ἀτραπὸν κατερρύην. καὶ ὁδῷ: βίῳ, ἔργῳ, πίστει. Δαυίδ: καὶ ἐν ὁδῷ ἁμαρτωλῶν οὐκ ἔστη.
The first paragraph of this entry is also in Photius (omicron37 Theodoridis), from Aelius Dionysius (omicron4); see also Appendix Proverbiorum 4.12 and other paroemiographers.
[1] Photius has 'a saying'. Theodoridis notes that Dindorf inserted the Suda's definite article, though he himself does not follow suit.
[2] Aristophanes fr. 47 Kock (and K.-A.). The noun here is not the headword phrase's ὁδοῦ ; it is transmitted as ὅρμου , though some would emend to οἶμου ("path").
[3] From epsilon 1386. The part of the entry, from ὁδῷ on, is lacking in manuscripts AFG; manuscripts V and M have it in different places. Adler regards it as an interpolation.
[4] Psalm 1.1 LXX.
