The path of Yahweh (Ps 25:8-25:10)

Tet      

“Good and upright is Yahweh.

Therefore he instructs sinners in his way.

Yod     

He leads the humble in what is right.

He teaches the humble his way.

Koph  

All the paths of Yahweh

Are steadfast love,

All the paths of Yahweh

Are faithfulness,

For those who keep his covenant

For those who keep his decrees.”

The answer is simple. Yahweh is good and upright. He instructs the sinners and the humble. He leads the humble because the paths of Yahweh are full of steadfast love and faithfulness. Those who keep his covenant and his decrees will have no problem because of Yahweh’s help.

Yahweh is always before me (Ps 16:7-16:8)

“I bless Yahweh!

He gives me counsel.

In the night also

My heart instructs me.

I keep Yahweh always before me.

Because he is at my right hand,

I shall not be moved.”

The psalmist blesses Yahweh who gives him counsel. Even at night, Yahweh instructs his heart. He keeps Yahweh always before him at his right hand. Thus the psalmist will not be moved to go astray because Yahweh is always with him.
