- Be determined to not say wicked things (especially v4)
- Don't be a hypocrite. Delight yourself in the Lord and call on Him (v10)
- Wicked people might have many nice things, but those things don't last. They end up bringing pain instead of pleasure.
- Wicked people end up with terrible destruction like from a storm (v21)
Will he delight himself in the Almighty? will he always call upon God?
Unlike a hypocrite, I should delight myself in the almighty and constantly pray.
From: Rock of AgesBy Augustus Toplady, 1776 and Thomas Hastings, 1830
Rock of Ages, cleft for me, Let me hide myself in Thee; Let the water and the blood, From Thy wounded side which flowed, Be of sin the double cure; Save from wrath and make me pure. Not the labor of my hands Can fulfill Thy law’s demands; Could my zeal no respite know, Could my tears forever flow, All for sin could not atone; Thou must save, and Thou alone. Nothing in my hand I bring, Simply to the cross I cling; Naked, come to Thee for dress; Helpless look to Thee for grace; Foul, I to the fountain fly; Wash me, Savior, or I die. While I draw this fleeting breath, When mine eyes shall close in death, When I soar to worlds unknown, See Thee on Thy judgment throne, Rock of Ages, cleft for me, Let me hide myself in Thee.listen to MP3 file
