Blessed is the man
Reading the Bible this morning, I came across the words “Blessed is the man…” in Jeremiah 17:7 NIV and those words immediately stood out to me. To be honest I’m not quite sure why they did, but just out of curiousity I decided to search for verses that had those words in it. Based on the search results, those words together mainly occur in Psalms and Proverbs but are present in a few verses elsewhere in the Bible. The following are a few of those verses:
Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers… – Psalm 1:1 NIV
Blessed is the man whom God corrects; so do not despise the discipline of the Almighty. – Job 5:17 NIV
