Walk in Delight

Psalm 1:1-2,6How blessed is the one who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, Nor stand in the path of sinners, Nor sit in the seat of scoffers! 2 But their delight is in the law of the LORD, and on His law they meditate day and night. … 6 the LORD watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.

Delight in the fear of the Lord!

Blessed is the one who delights in obedience to the Lord –Ps 112:1
Who uses His word as a lamp to their feet
And a light to their path. –
Ps 119:105

Trust in the Lord and do good –Ps 37:3
Bow before Him
With a humble, soft, pliable heart. –
Ps 37:4

Blessed is the one who surrenders and trusts Him 
They walk in tender hearted delight! 2Ki 22:19
John 8:12Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; the one who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”


The Lord takes pleasure in those who reverently and worshipfully fear Him, In those who hope in His mercy and loving-kindness. Psam 147:11


Word Study
From NetBible Ps 1:1-2

  • *  To “walk in the counsel of the wicked” means to allow their evil advice to impact and determine one’s behavior.
  • * “Path” here refers to the lifestyle of sinners. To “stand in the pathway of/with sinners” means to closely associate with them in their sinful behavior.
  • * The Hebrew word “scoffers” refers to arrogant individuals (Pro 21:24) who love conflict (Pro 22:10) and reject wisdom/correction (Pro 1:22; 9:7-8; 13:1; 15:12). To “sit in the assembly” of such people means to completely identify with them in their proud, sinful plans and behavior.
  • * The sequence “walk–stand–sit” envisions a progression from relatively casual association with the wicked to complete identification with them.
  • * delight in meditation in order to obey


Psalm 37:3-4 … Trust in the LORD, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.

From NetBible Ps 37:4

  • Delight[06026] = to be soft{pliable}, be delicate, be dainty
  • Desires[04862] = request, petition, prayers

*Faith and obedience (v. 3) will bring divine blessing (v. 4).

2 Kings 22:18-19 … Tell the king of Judah, who sent you to enquire of the LORD, ‘This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says concerning the words you heard: Because your heart was tender, and you have humbled yourself before the Lord, when you heard what I spoke against this place . . . I also have heard you, says the Lord.

From NetBible 2Ki 22:19

  • Tender[07401] = to be soft, sensitive, responsive, penitent
  • Humbled[03665] = to be brought into subjection
    * two key references Lev 26:41 & 2 Chron 7:14 indicate that so long as a person, or nation, is arrogant or self sufficient, God can do nothing for them
