WARNINGS AND INSTRUCTIONS | (Proverbs Chapter 28)

warning

Proverbs Chapter 28 (NASB):

“28:1The wicked flee when no one is pursuing,

But the righteous are bold as a lion.

2By the transgression of a land many are its princes,

But by a man of understanding and knowledge, so it endures. [This is key…The only reason the earth and the human race remains is because of the righteous. If righteous people ceased to exist, we would implode.]

3A poor man who oppresses the lowly

Is like a driving rain which leaves no food.

4Those who forsake the law [Torah/YaHoVaH’s Instructions/God’s Law….Way] praise the wicked,

But those who keep the law [Torah/YaHoVaH’s Instructions/God’s Law….Way] strive with them.

5Evil men do not understand justice,

But those who seek the LORD [YaHoVaH] understand all things.

6Better is the poor who walks in his integrity

Than he who is crooked though he be rich.

7He who keeps the law [Torah/YaHoVaH’s Instructions/God’s Law….Way] is a discerning son,

But he who is a companion of gluttons humiliates his father.

8He who increases his wealth by interest and usury

Gathers it for him who is gracious to the poor.

9He who turns away his ear from listening to the law [Torah/YaHoVaH’s Instructions/God’s Law….Way],

Even his prayer is an abomination.

10He who leads the upright astray in an evil way

Will himself fall into his own pit,

But the blameless will inherit good.

11The rich man is wise in his own eyes,

But the poor who has understanding sees through him.

12When the righteous triumph, there is great glory,

But when the wicked rise, men hide themselves.

13He who conceals his transgressions will not prosper,

But he who confesses and forsakes them will find compassion.

14How blessed is the man who fears [YaHoVaH and His Ways] always,

But he who hardens his heart will fall into calamity.

15Like a roaring lion and a rushing bear

Is a wicked ruler over a poor people.

16A leader who is a great oppressor lacks understanding,

But he who hates unjust gain will prolong his days.

17A man who is laden with the guilt of human blood

Will be a fugitive until death; let no one support him.

18He who walks blamelessly will be delivered,

But he who is crooked will fall all at once.

19He who tills his land will have plenty of food,

But he who follows empty pursuits will have poverty in plenty.

20A faithful man will abound with blessings,

But he who makes haste to be rich will not go unpunished.

21To show partiality is not good,

Because for a piece of bread a man will transgress.

22A man with an evil eye hastens after wealth

And does not know that want will come upon him.

23He who rebukes a man will afterward find more favor

Than he who flatters with the tongue.

24He who robs his father or his mother

And says, “It is not a transgression,”

Is the companion of a man who destroys.

25An arrogant man stirs up strife,

But he who trusts in the LORD [YaHoVaH] will prosper.

26He who trusts in his own heart is a fool,

But he who walks wisely will be delivered.

27He who gives to the poor will never want,

But he who shuts his eyes will have many curses.

28When the wicked rise, men hide themselves;

But when they perish, the righteous increase.”
This really encouraged me this morning when I was feeling like the hearts of the human race are becoming more and more inclined towards selfishness, wickedness, unrighteousness, stubbornness, hard heartedness and almost everything described in this portion of Proverbs. If we truly want to be discerning sons and daughters [verse 7], we have to understand what the creator requires of us and not throw a temper tantrum when it doesn’t fit into our earthly view of what is right and wrong. We cannot get our definition of sin and unrighteousness from the world because they are only pursuing vain things and are not after the heart of the Father. I will leave my commentary to a minimum on this one and let YaHoVaH speak to you individually from His Words.
Have a blessed day and “BE AS BOLD AS A LION” [Verse 1] in these end times where wickedness abounds.

What About Those Who Do Not Know The Name of God?

tetragrammartonThe most common question I hear among those that I share the truth of the name is “Doesn’t Yahweh know who I’m talking to? Why does it matter what I call Him, He answers me anyway?”

I believe that it is true. Yahweh does and will answer prayer and accept praise from those who have no knowledge of His true name. But what about those who DO know but don’t care?

Psal 44:20 (NKJV) If we had forgotten the name of our Elohim,
Or stretched out our hands to a foreign god,
21 Would not Elohim search this out?
For He knows the secrets of the heart.

What does Yahweh really want us to do on this issue? Continue to call Him whatever we want? Or to call Him by the name He has assigned to Himself?

I do not think there is anything wrong with calling Yahweh our Father, Master, Creator, etc. which are all fitting titles. What I think Yahweh would have a real problem with is changing His name from Yahweh to “Lord” It is extremely ironic, if not prophetic what Yahweh declared to Jeremiah when we understand that the word “Baal” means “Lord.”

Jere 23:26,27 “How long will this be in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies? Indeed they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart, who try to make My people forget My name by their dreams which everyone tells his neighbor, as their fathers forgot My name for Baal.”(LORD)

Also consider what Yahweh declared to Hosea:

Hose 2:16 (KJV) And it shall be at that day, saith Yahweh, that thou shalt call me Ishi (My Husband); and shalt call me no more Baali. (My lord) For I will take away the names of Baalim out of her mouth, and they shall no more be remembered by their name.

I tell you, it struck me as odd that Baal’s name is never changed or translated and therefore lives on while Yahweh’s name is falsified over 7000 times in scripture! But I think I might know why. See here, if they did try to translate the name Baal, then there is one thing they would have to deal with. Look at how the verse would read if they did not restore Yahweh’s name:

1Kin 18:21 (NKJV) And Elijah came to all the people, and said, “How long will you falter between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Lord (Baal), follow him.” But the people answered him not a word.

One might be quite confused when reading the text. Because of this relationship between Baal and Lord, I prefer not to use Lord at all. Lord is the word used to replace Yahweh’s name. I’m not saying that the entire Christian world is worshiping “Baal”, but the coincidence here seems quite striking.

It is truth that many times in scripture, we see His people calling on His name. Men during the time of Adam called on the name of Yahweh

Gene 4:26 (NKJV) And as for Seth, to him also a son was born; and he named him Enosh. Then [men] began to call on the name of Yahweh.

Abraham called upon the name of Yahweh:

Gene 12:7 (NKJV) Then Yahweh appeared to Abram and said, “To your descendants I will give this land.” And there he built an altar to Yahweh, who had appeared to him. 8 And he moved from there to the mountain east of Bethel, and he pitched his tent [with] Bethel on the west and Ai on the east; there he built an altar to Yahweh and called on the name of Yahweh.

Moshe called upon the name of Yahweh:

Exod 3:15 (NKJV) Moreover Elohim said to Moses, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel: `Yahweh Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Abraham, the Elohim of Isaac, and the Elohim of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is My name forever, and this is My memorial to all generations.’

David called upon the name of Yahweh:

Psal 116:13 (KJV) I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of Yahweh.

Psal 116:17 (KJV) I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of Yahweh.

EliYah the prophet called upon the name of Yahweh:

1Kin 18:24 (NKJV) “Then you call on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of Yahweh; and the Elohim who answers by fire, He is Elohim.” So all the people answered and said, “It is well spoken.”

Yahushua the Messiah called upon the name of Yahweh:

John 17:25 (NKJV) “O righteous Father! The world has not known You, but I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me. 26 “And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare [it], that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.”

What more do we need? If the scriptures are written for our learning and righteous men for our example, do the scriptures not clearly show that HIS people call on His name? Let’s see what else the word of Yahweh says:

Isai 52:6 (NKJV) Therefore My people shall know My name; Therefore they shall know in that day That I am He who speaks: `Behold, it is I.’ “

Let’s look at an end time prophecy. Will Yahweh’s people be calling on His name at that time, in this age?

Zech 13:7 (NKJV) “Awake, O sword, against My Shepherd, Against the Man who is My Companion,” Says Yahweh of hosts. “Strike the Shepherd, And the sheep will be scattered; Then I will turn My hand against the little ones.
8 And it shall come to pass in all the land,” Says Yahweh, “That two-thirds in it shall be cut off and die, But one- third shall be left in it:
9 I will bring the [one]-third through the fire, Will refine them as silver is refined, And test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, And I will answer them. I will say, `This [is] My people’; And each one will say, `Yahweh is my Elohim.’ “

Here is another prophetic scripture reveals His people are using His name:

Reve 14:1 (NKJV) Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred [and] forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads.

Clearly, His people use His name. Some have said that these scriptures that speak of His name do not actually speak of the literal spoken and written name of Yahweh but rather His character and reputation. A simple study of the meaning of the word “Shem” that is translated “name” in our english bibles will reveal that this word, very much like our English word, not only means a “character” but also means a literal written and spoken name. If I say to you that I come in the name of peace, then I am telling you that I want to characterize myself as offering peace. These things are indeed true.

However, if I told you that my name was JimBob then I would not be telling you the truth. Here is an example of a falsification:

Isai 42:8 (NKJV) I am Yahweh, that is My name; And My glory I will not give to another, Nor My praise to carved images.

has been changed to:

Isai 42:8 (NKJV) I am the Lord, that is My name; And My glory I will not give to another, Nor My praise to carved images.

The latter statement is simply not true! And its not like it was a simple mistake by the translators. It was completely on purpose. And it had unscriptural intentions. Most prefaces of bible translations will cite familiarity and tradition as the reasons for the substitutionsThis is clearly against what Yahweh has told us to do in the scriptures.

If we say HalleluYah, we can know what it really means! (HalleluYAH means “Praise You YAHweh”) When we end a prayer in Yahushua’s name, we can know what it really means. (YAHushua means “YAHweh is salvation”) When we speak to Yahweh, it is on a personal basis through a personal name. If we proclaim Yahweh, we can know that we are proclaiming His name, just as all those in scriptures have done.

As Moshe said:

Deut 32:1 (NKJV) “Give ear, O heavens, and I will speak; And hear, O earth, the words of my mouth. 2 Let my teaching drop as the rain, My speech distill as the dew, As raindrops on the tender herb, And as showers on the grass. 3 For I proclaim the name of Yahweh: Ascribe greatness to our Elohim.

I believe it all comes down to a choice. Whether one will choose the excuses of
men or the word of Yahweh Almighty.-The Berean

Are You Confused About Colossians Chapter 2 (Video)?

colossians_title-608x456

2:1 For I want you to know how great a struggle I have on your behalf and for those who are at Laodicea, and for all those who have not personally seen my face, 2 that their hearts may be encouraged, having been knit together in love, and attaining to all the wealth that comes from the full assurance of understanding, resulting in a true knowledge of God’s mystery, that is, Christ Himself, 3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. 4 I say this so that no one will delude you with persuasive argument. 5 For even though I am absent in body, nevertheless I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good discipline and the stability of your faith in Christ.
6 Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, 7 having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude.
8 See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ. 9 For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form, 10 and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority; 11 and in Him you were also circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, in the removal of the body of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ; 12 having been buried with Him in baptism, in which you were also raised up with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead. 13 When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our transgressions, 14 having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against us, which was hostile to us; and He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. 15 When He had disarmed the rulers and authorities, He made a public display of them, having triumphed over them through Him.
16 Therefore no one is to act as your judge in regard to food or drink or in respect to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath day– 17 things which are a mere shadow of what is to come; but the substance belongs to Christ. 18 Let no one keep defrauding you of your prize by delighting in self-abasement and the worship of the angels, taking his stand on visions he has seen, inflated without cause by his fleshly mind, 19 and not holding fast to the head, from whom the entire body, being supplied and held together by the joints and ligaments, grows with a growth which is from God.
20 If you have died with Christ to the elementary principles of the world, why, as if you were living in the world, do you submit yourself to decrees, such as, 21 “Do not handle, do not taste, do not touch!” 22 (which all refer to things destined to perish with use)–in accordance with the commandments and teachings of men? 23 These are matters which have, to be sure, the appearance of wisdom in self-made religion and self-abasement and severe treatment of the body, but are of no value against fleshly indulgence.

Did the Seventh Day Sabbath Change to Sunday?

Sabbath 2There is a history behind the fourth commandment that many Christians and followers of Jesus (Yahshuah) have no clue exists. Many believe that because they go to church on Sunday and go home and take a nap after church, they are keeping the fourth commandment. Of course their is grace for this situation when in our hearts we are wanting to please God (Yahweh) the father and keep all 10 of His commandments. However, it is when we come to an understanding of the truth that we are then given a choice of the heart whether we are going to serve Yahweh and keep his commands because we love him or continue doing what we know to be wrong in the eyes of Yahweh because we are afraid of disrupting our current level of comfort and our flow of life. Like it or not, we do this everyday when we allow the things of this world to distract us from being messengers of truth and a light in the midst of the darkness. In the same manner, we have to accknowledge when we are wrong and be willing to change even if it means our friends might think we are weird or being legalistic. Again I say, your friends will not be judging you on judgment day but Yahweh and His son Yahshuah will be the ones you have to answer to. I think that we can both agree that these are the last words we want to hear on judgement day;

Matthew 7:21-23 – 21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. 22 Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS (WITHOUT TORAH).’

With that being said, we have to examine the debate surrounding the seventh day sabbath and really take a hard look at what the scriptures say and what man says. In the end we have to choose the Father over man.

Jeremiah 16:19 says, “O LORD (YHWH), my strength and my fortress, My refuge in the day of affliction (End Days), The Gentiles shall come to You from the ends of the earth and say, “Surely our fathers have inherited lies, Worthlessness and unprofitable things.” Will man make gods for himself, which are not gods?”

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! – DO NOT READ THIS POST ANY FURTHER IF YOU WANT TO STILL BELIEVE THAT SUNDAY IS THE SABBATH AND THAT THE SEVENTH DAY (SATURDAY) IS NO LONGER HOLY AND IMPORTANT TO YAHWEH.

If you are still reading then I commend you for your bravery and courage. Yahshuah (Jesus) says in Matthew 5:10, “Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness (keeping the torah and Yahweh’s) commandments), for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. He also says in Matthew 7:14, “For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.” What you are about to read will actually make your stomach turn. Here we go!

In the Convert’s Catechism of Catholic Doctrine, we read:

Q. Which is the Sabbath day?

A. Saturday is the Sabbath day.

Q. Why do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday?

A. We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church, in the Council of Laodicea, (AD 336) transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday….

Q. Why did the Catholic Church substitute Sunday for Saturday?

A. The Church substituted Sunday for Saturday, because Christ rose from the dead on a Sunday, and the Holy Ghost descended upon the Apostles on a Sunday.

Q. By what authority did the Church substitute Sunday for Saturday?

A. The Church substituted Sunday for Saturday by the plenitude of that divine power which Jesus Christ bestowed upon her! —Rev. Peter Geiermann, C.SS.R., (1946), p. 50.

In the Catholic Christian Instructed, we read:

Q. Has the [Catholic] church power to make any alterations in the commandments of God?

A. …Instead of the seventh day, and other festivals appointed by the old law, the church has prescribed the Sundays and holy days to be set apart for God’s worship; and these we are now obliged to keep in consequence of God’s commandment, instead of the ancient Sabbath. —Rt. Rev. Dr. Challoner, p. 211.

In the An Abridgment of the Christian Doctrine, we read:

Q. How prove you that the church hath power to command feasts and holy days?

A. By the very act of changing the Sabbath into Sunday, which Protestants allow of; and therefore they fondly contradict themselves, by keeping Sunday strictly, and breaking most other feasts commanded by the same church.

Q. How prove you that?

A. Because by keeping Sunday, they acknowledge the church’s power to ordain feasts, and to command them under sin; and by not keeping the rest [of the feasts] by her commanded, they again deny, in fact, the same power. –Rev. Henry Tuberville, D.D. (R.C.), (1833), page 58.

In the A Doctrinal Catechism, we read:

Q. Have you any other way of proving that the Church has power to institute festivals of precept?

A. Had she not such power, she could not have done that in which all modern religionists agree with her. She could not have substituted the observance of Sunday the first day of the week, for the observance of Saturday the seventh day, a change for which there is no Scriptural authority. –Rev. Stephen Keenan, (1851), p. 174.

In the Catechism of the Council of Trent, we read:

The Church of God has thought it well to transfer the celebration and observance of the Sabbath to Sunday! –p 402, second revised edition (English), 1937. (First published in 1566)

In the Augsburg Confession, we read:

They [the Catholics] allege the Sabbath changed into Sunday, the Lord’s day, contrary to the Decalogue, as it appears; neither is there any example more boasted of than the changing of the Sabbath day. Great, they say, is the power and authority of the church, since it dispensed with one of the Ten Commandments. —Art. 28.

God warned that a blasphemous power would “seek to change times and laws,” and the Catholic Church openly admits doing it, even boasts about it. In a sermon at the Council of Trent in 1562, the Archbishop of Reggia, Caspar del Fossa, claimed that the Catholic Church’s whole authority is based upon the fact that they changed the Sabbath to Sunday. Does this not fulfill the prophecies of Daniel and Paul?

“For centuries millions of Christians have gathered to worship God on the first day of the week. Graciously He has accepted this worship. He has poured out His blessings upon Christian people as they have sought to serve Him. However, as one searches the Scriptures, he is forced to recognize that Sunday is not a day of God’s appointment… It has no foundation in Scripture, but has arisen entirely as a result of custom,” says Frank H. Yost, Ph.D. in The Early Christian Sabbath.

Let us ask the question again: Was the Sabbath changed from the seventh day of the week to the first? The Bible is clear: “And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy” (Genesis 2:3). “Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy” (Exodus 20:11). If God intended for another day to become the Sabbath, He must have removed the blessing from the seventh day and placed it on the day, which was to replace it. But when God bestows a blessing, it is forever. “…You, O Lord, have blessed it, and it will be blessed forever” (1 Chronicles 17:27). “I have received a command to bless; He has blessed, and I cannot change it” (Numbers 23:20). Your birthday, a memorial of your birth, can’t be changed, though you may celebrate it on a different day. Neither can the Sabbath, a memorial of creation (Exodus 20:11), be changed, though some may celebrate it on a different day.

God instructed Moses to construct the earthly sanctuary, all its furniture, and the ark according to “the pattern” he was shown. (Exodus 25:9, 40) The ark was called the “ark of the covenant” (Numbers 10:33, Deuteronomy 10:8, Hebrews 9:4), and the “ark of the testimony” (Exodus 25:22), because in it Moses placed the tablets of stone on which God wrote His Law. (Exodus 25:16, 31:18) John, in Revelation 11:19, describes the scene before him when “the temple of God was opened in Heaven.” John saw the Ark of the Covenant in the heavenly sanctuary. David wrote, “Your word, O Lord, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens” (Psalm 119:89). It is safe to assume that God’s Law remains, contained within the ark of the covenant in the heavenly sanctuary.

When God says, “The seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God” (Exodus 20:10), that ends all controversy. We cannot change God’s Word for our own convenience. “But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve” (Joshua 24:15).

There is a reason that in the fourth commandment Yahweh went out of his way to put the word “remember” into the phrase “remember the sabbath day and keep it holy”. In the hebrew language the word “remember” also means “to guard” or “to protect”. This insinuates that someone or something will try to take it from you. Well, do you think that someone or something has done a good job at taking the seventh day sabbath from us? The answer is emphatically YES! One thing to remember in this is that the sabbath is not what day you go to church, it is a specific day on the calendar which Yahweh made holy and commanded us to rest. We will address the issue of rest and what the benefits of honoring the sabbath can bring in today’s society in another post. Yahweh wants us to view the Sabbath with delight in the same way that we were raised to delight in Sunday. Now it is important that we do not trample on the spirit of grace that has covered us all these years regarding the Sabbath. Scripture addresses this directly in Hebrews.

It says, “For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries. Anyone who has rejected Moses’ law dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God (Yahshuah) underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace?” (Hebrews 10:26-29 NKJV)

I will leave you with this for now to chew on for a while. May Yahweh bless you and keep you in the name of Yahshuah Ha Moshiach (Jesus the Messiah).

-The Berean

Where is the Apostle Paul in the Pecking Order? Who Should We Listen To?

Who do you listen toAs we examine the scriptures from Genesis to Revelation with a heart to know and serve God, it is important that we know who to listen to and the order of command. I hope that we can both agree that we must first listen to the Father and then listen to the Son. If the Father and the son are in agreement, then we have to hold everything that anyone including Paul says whether it is in the cannon of scriptures or not to the same standard as the Father and the Son. We will not answer to Paul on judgment day but instead to the Father (Yahweh) and the Son (Yeshuah) who will be seated at the right hand as king. My hope is that we can all approach the scriptures and our walk with Yeshuah in this manner and never let what man says take precedence over what the Father and the Son say.

Yahweh says:

Deuteronomy 30:11 “For this commandment which I command you today is not too difficult for you, nor is it out of reach.

Yeshuah says:

Matthew 5:17-19 – 17 “Do not think that I came to abolish the Law (Torah) or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill (carry out (a task, duty, or role) as required, pledged, or expected). 18 For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished. 19 Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 7:21-23 – 21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. 22 Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS (TORAHLESSNESS).’

John 8:26-29 – 26 I have many things to speak and to judge concerning you, but He who sent Me is true; and the things which I heard from Him, these I speak to the world.” 27 They did not realize that He had been speaking to them about the Father. 28 So Jesus (Yeshuah) said, “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and I do nothing on My own initiative, but I speak these things as the Father taught Me. 29 And He who sent Me is with Me; He has not left Me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to Him.”

Psalms Chapter 1-6 – 1 How blessed is the man 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 his delight is in the law (Torah) of the LORD (Yahweh), And in His law (Torah) he meditates day and night. 3 He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, Which yields its fruit in its season And its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers. 4 The wicked are not so, But they are like chaff, which the wind drives away. 5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous (Torah Keepers). 6 For the LORD knows the way of the righteous (Torah Keepers), But the way of the wicked will perish.

Shalom!
