The Path of the Righteous One…

 As we follow the path of your judgments, O Jehovah,
Our hope is in you.
We long for your name and your memorial.
In the night I long for you with my whole being,
Yes, my spirit keeps looking for you;+
For when there are judgments from you for the earth,
The inhabitants of the land learn about righteousness.
================================
Jehovah provides salvation for those who turn to his light, and he guides their path, as Isaiah next shows: “The path of the righteous one is uprightness. You being upright, you will smooth out the very course of a righteous one. Yes, for the path of your judgments, O Jehovah, we have hoped in you. For your name and for your memorial the desire of the soul has been.”

Jehovah is a righteous God, and those who worship him must observe his righteous standards. When they do, Jehovah guides them, smoothing their course. By heeding his guidance, these meek ones show that they hope in Jehovah and wholeheartedly cherish his name—his “memorial.”
