Bible Commentary for Psalms 1:1

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.

    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.
