Psalms 37:23

The steps of a [good] man are ordered by the Lord
Or "of a man" F23; such a man as is blessed of the Lord; the steps which he takes in life are ordered by the Lord, both with respect to things temporal and spiritual: his good conduct is not of himself, it is a blessing of the Lord, who directs and keeps the feet of his saints, and inclines them to take such steps, and pursue such methods, which he succeeds and prospers;

and he delighteth in his way;
which he knows and approves of, guides and directs him in; see ( Psalms 1:6 ) .

Psalms 37:23 In-Context

21 The wicked borrow, and do not pay back, but the righteous are generous and keep giving;
22 for those blessed by the Lord shall inherit the land, but those cursed by him shall be cut off.
23 Our steps are made firm by the Lord, when he delights in our way;
24 though we stumble, we shall not fall headlong, for the Lord holds us by the hand.
25 I have been young, and now am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread.
