proverbs 14 9
Proverbs 14:9

Fools make a mock at sin: but among the righteous there is favour.

walketh sitteth standeth
Walketh –sitteth - standeth

These are arranged to show the progression of sin in the lives of those who follow after sin

The blessed man puts away evil things and evil persons from him


“He that would be kept from harm must keep himself out of harm’s way.”

Proverbs 13:20

“He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.”


“But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.” (v.2)

4. “His delight is in the law of the Lord”

He loves to read and study God’s Word

He reads the Word by day and meditates upon it by night

js 1 25
Js. 1:25

But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.


What a man meditates upon determines the real inner man

“A man may not be what he thinks he is, but what he thinks, he is.”

acts 17 11
Acts 17:11

These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

5 he is a man who prospers in all things v 3
5. He is a man who prospers in all things (v. 3)

“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.”


Being fruitful is a requirement of all of God’s children

Jn. 15:5

“I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.”

gal 5 22 23
Gal. 5:22-23

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.


The righteous man prospers when he does things God’s way

His life is nourished by God’s blessings

1 pet 3 10 12
1 Pet. 3:10-12

For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it…


For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.

ii the ungodly man vs 4 5
II. The Ungodly man (vs. 4-5)

“The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.” (v. 4)

“Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.” (v.5)


The ungodly will not stand approved in judgment

There will not be one ungodly person in heaven

rev 21 27
Rev. 21:27

And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.

rev 22 15
Rev. 22:15

For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

iii the two ways contrasted v 6
III. The two ways contrasted (v.6)

“For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.” (v.6)


God knows of and approves the way of the righteous

The ungodly shall perish – eternally lost in hell

They will be punished because of the life they chose to live!

2. They shall not be acquitted on the day of judgment

3. They will not be in heaven
