ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the
scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth
he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of
water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not
wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly are not so: but
are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not
stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the
LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
I find this Psalm comforting because it reminds me of the security that is in God's Word. I memorized it in High School, in the King James, which is why I have it pasted in that version. But, the hotlink reveals the KJV2000. But, beyond the comfort of God's Word, the passage warns us of the foolishness of taking the advice of those who are not invested in Scripture. We are told the conclusion of the matter for those who give advice carelessly. They won't stand when judged. They will die. Those who follow God's Word will live forever in the resurrection.
This is not always easy to remember, and I have found myself accepting advice from people I should not have been listening to. That never goes well for me. And, the bad results are just followed with an "oops, my bad," from the advice givers. Yet, the advice was given with such authority and I suffered the consequences alone. That's what happens when you get advice. Advice is free to give and costly to receive. I have found that those who set themselves up as experts have fools for constituents. I am better off praying and reading the Bible, than when I take the advice of well-meaning friends who are uninvested in the Word of God.
