Blessed is Loved One, who doesn’t follow the advice of self-centered people. Who also doesn’t stand and watch what ungoldy people are doing, or sit down and chat with mockers. their passion is in the Bible and in the love of the LORD. Loved One meditates on both every night.
Loved One walks and talks with God daily, any time of the day or night. That is why Loved One is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever Loved One does, succeeds better than they could have succeeded if they had done it alone.
Not so selfish, self-absorbed, and self-focused people! They are like useless pieces of paper that the wind blows away. They will not be standing after the judgment, nor will the unrepentant sit in the assembly of the righteous along with Loved One.
For the LORD watches over the way of Loved One, He loves them. The selfish, self-absorbed, and self-focused people will fail miserably in the long run.
