Wesley's Notes for Psalms 1:1

1:1 Blessed - The Hebrew words are very emphatical: O the blessedness of that man! Counsel - That doth not lead his life according to their counsel, or manner of living. Standeth - Which notes a more settled abode in it. Way - In their manner of conversation. Seat - Which notes a constant and resolved perseverance in their wicked courses. Scornful - Of those who make a mock of sin, and scoff at goodness and goodmen. Divers observe a gradation in this verse; the following clause still exceeding the former, for standing is more than walking, and sitting more than standing; and sinners in scripture use, are worse than the ungodly, and the scornful are the worst of sinners.

MockingBird's comment on 2015-08-18 09:34:12:

The ungodly are those that know not God : As Christians along with those of us that call on the Lord : We are to separate ourselves from the ungodly : Have no fellowship : We are Blessed when we seek God's counsel and do it : Yes sometimes even from loved ones and some fellow Christians that do not allow God to have His will in their lives : That say they are a Christian but have no fruit bearing in their lives !!!

Through psalms 1:1 I 've learned that I must seek Godly council to be happy and free, I must stay away from the ungodly and worldly advise, unless to witness the truth. Jesus

It simply strengthens and encourages believers to be in Christ Jesus


Anne's comment on 2014-07-30 11:21:12:

It tells me to not get advice counsel from the ungodly. So I try to find Christians professionals, such as Doctors, Lawyers, Financial Planners, Real Estate agents, etc. These people can hear from God and can give you the best advice for your particular need. Not what is best for the world at large, or what the enemy would like for you to hear or do.

If we want to be blessed, bottom line, we can not be around ungodly people. It may mean walking away from friends, family, and even a spouse or significant other if we want to receive the blessings God has in store for them who love Him.


Dharam's comment on 2014-05-21 07:16:00:

The man who will be blessed is the man who follow God 's Word and not the worldly standards. Brethren we must live a life that is pleasing to God in order to receive the blessings that he has for us
