Psalm 112 … delight of the law

112 Praise ye the Lord. Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord, that delighteth* greatly in his commandments**. (*H2654 חָפֵץ chaphets (chaw-fates’) v. 1. (properly) to incline to. 2. (by implication) (literally but rarely) to bend towards. 3. (figuratively) to be pleased with, desire.** H4687 מִצוָה mitsvah (mits-vaw’) n-f. a command, law, precept)

His seed (fruit/offspring) shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed.

Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth forever.

Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.

A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.

Surely he shall not be moved forever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.

He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord.

His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies.

He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth forever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.

10 The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.

 

Why do we see such misery and despair in the world today? Could it be that we have strayed from the delight of YHVH’s law?
