1 God’s favor rest on those who do not take counsel in godless people, live like the world or cast judgment on others.
2 Highly favored children find their supreme joy is to follow and continually meditate on God’s Word day and night.
3 They are like flourishing trees planted by rivers of water. The Eternal Source ensures they will never die and enables them to be the most fruitful in prospering in everything they do.
4 In stark contrast those who do not follow God are dust particles that evaporate into the wind.
5 Therefore those who are not following God will be condemned judgment and will not be able to enjoy the rewards of the righteous.
6 For the Lord watches over the paths of the righteous the life of the ungodly is a dead end road to destruction.
