  1. The Blessed ManPsalm 1

  2. Isolates Himself from Evil Influence The Psalmist here uses three triplets which build in intensity with each progression demonstrating a profound truth - a minor deviation from God’s direction can only lead one to completely rejecting the instruction of God and ultimately to destroy any hope that one might have for peace in their life. The Blessed ManPsalm 1

  3. Isolates Himself from Evil Influence Walk - describes the character and behavior of one’s life Counsel - “has two basic, though closely related, meanings: “counsel, advice” and “plan, purpose” (Mounce) Wicked - “denotes the category of people who have done wrong, are still living in sin, and are intent on continuing with wrongdoing” (Vine’s) The Blessed ManPsalm 1

  4. Isolates Himself from Evil Influence Stand - to stand or prop but also to persevere, to remain “be or become servant of” Path - a road (as trodden); a course of life or mode of action Sinners - “exposed to condemnation” The Blessed ManPsalm 1

  5. Isolates Himself from Evil Influence Sit - “to live, to inhabit, to dwell” (Mounce) Seat - “ seat, assembly, dwelling-place, dwelling, dwellers” (Brown, Driver, Briggs) Scoffers - “scorn” those who mock religion/God The Blessed ManPsalm 1

  6. Insulates Himself from Evil Influence Delight - literally desire or will but more than just a disposition of the mind The law of the Lord - direction, instruction, law (BDB) Meditates day and night - reflecting the sighing and low sounds one may make while musing, at least as the ancients practiced it. The Blessed ManPsalm 1

  7. Intentional in His Faith Planted - “transplanted” (BDB), “firmly planted so that no winds that wage around it may move it from its place” (JFB) Brings forth fruit in his season - the fruit which one expects from it, it yields... and that at its appointed, proper time (Keil and Delitzsch) Its leaf does not whither - due to intentional planting and proper sustenance The Blessed ManPsalm 1

  8. A Contrasted Life 4 The wicked are not so, But they are like chaff which the wind drives away.Psalm 1:4 (NASB95) The Blessed ManPsalm 1

  9. A Contrasted Life 24 The Lord bless you, and keep you; 25 The Lord make His face shine on you, And be gracious to you; 26 The Lord lift up His countenance on you, And give you peace.’Numbers 6:24–26 (NASB95) The Blessed ManPsalm 1
