Vs 1 – How happy and at peace is the man who does not listen to the advice and counsel of the ungodly, wicked and condemned, nor will he stand in the path of those who willfully choose to do that which is wrong before God, nor will he sit down with and make a place with those who mock and make fun of God, His people and God’s way.
Vs 2 – But this man takes great pleasure in knowing, understanding and keeping the law of the Lord. He meditates and thinks on it day and night.
Vs 3 – You can be sure, that man will be like a tree on the banks of a stream of water. Like that tree he will be nourished and bear fruit in due season. He will not dry out and die for the Lord will bless and prosper what this man does.
Vs 4 – But it’s a whole different story for the wicked who reject God. They are like chaff that will be blown away by the wind. Nothing that they do will last.
Vs 5 – The wicked will not be there when the Lord God Almighty rewards and judges His godly people, those declared righteous by the blood and sacrifice of Jesus Christ. The wicked won’t be seen when the righteous are judged.
Vs 6 – You can be certain that the Lord knows the righteous and what they are doing. He also knows the wicked and that there is coming a day in which they will be judged rightly. They will be in the place of torment forever as a penalty for their unrepentance and sins. For they have rejected Jesus Christ and His perfect atoning sacrifice on the cross as payment in full for their sins.
