|If the LORD delights in a man's way, |
he makes his steps firm;
though he stumble, he will not fall,
for the LORD upholds him with his hand.
|The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand. |
| The steps of a man are established by the LORD, |
And He delights in his way.
When he falls, he will not be hurled headlong,
Because the LORD is the One who holds his hand.
|Psalm 37:23-24 |
CommentaryThe righteous know that when they fall, they are never left lying there; when they stumble, they are never completely forsaken.
