His pleasure and passion is remaining true to the Word of “I Am,”
meditating day and night in the true revelation of light.[a]
He will be standing firm like a flourishing tree
planted by God’s design,[b]
deeply rooted by the brooks of bliss,
bearing fruit in every season of his life.
He is never dry, never fainting,
ever blessed, ever prosperous.[c]
But how different are the wicked.
All they are is dust in the wind—
driven away to destruction!
