Psalms 128:1 Meaning and Commentary

Psalms 128:1

Blessed [is] everyone that feareth the Lord
Be he who he will; of whatsoever nation, Jew or Gentile; of whatsoever sex, age, or condition, high or low, rich or poor, ( Acts 10:35 ) ; such an one is blessed now, and will be hereafter; (See Gill on Psalms 112:1);

that walketh in his ways:
which God has prescribed and directed his people to walk in, his ordinances and commands; which, to walk in, is both pleasant and profitable: it supposes life, requires strength and wisdom; and is expressive of progression, or going on and continuance in them: and where the true fear of God is, which includes every grace, and the whole of religious worship, there will be a conscientious regard to the ways of God: such avoid evil, and do good, because of the fear of God, ( Job 1:1 ) ( Nehemiah 5:15 ) .
