“Happy are those
Whom you discipline!
Happy are those
Whom you teach
Out of your law.
Give them respite from days of trouble,
Until a pit is dug for the wicked.
Yahweh will not forsake his people.
He will not abandon his heritage.
Justice will return to the righteous.
All the upright in heart will follow it.”
Everyone should be happy to be disciplined by Yahweh. When Yahweh teaches them out of the law, they should be happy. They will get rest from their troubled days when the pit for the wicked is finally dug. Yahweh will not abandon his people or his heritage. Justice will come to the righteous. The upright in heart will follow. There is no need to worry. Yahweh will come through for them.
