Most have heard the scripture about the noonday sun written in Psalm 37:6. However, let’s take a moment to dive in a bit deeper today.
“5Commit your way to YAHWEH; trust in Him, and He will do it. 6He will bring forth your righteousness like the dawn, your justice like the noonday sun.”
In Psalm 37:5-6, scripture tells us to commit our ways to Yahweh’s ways. To trust in Him and He will bring forth righteousness like the dawn. It is important to understand how a life changes when a heart commits to Yah’s ways. When a heart trusts Him and walks in what He commands, righteousness comes forth. The reference to the dawn provides a beautiful visualization of what it looks like Spiritually when a Heart comes into alignment with Yahushua. It is when the darkness fades, and the LIGHT breaks through. It brings a NEW day and paints the sky with His Beauty. It is amazing what happens in a person’s life when they truly commit their ways to Him and trust Him.
Let’s read on “your justice like the noonday sun”. When Yahweh opened my eyes to a deeper meaning of this scripture it really Blessed me, and I hope it Blesses you as well! I had heard the scripture multiple times but had not stopped to pause and receive the full meaning. The noonday sun is located directly over your head. You are literally aligned perfectly with the “Son”. And when you are aligned with the “Son”, there is no shadow. Have you ever noticed that with the noon sun? Take a moment to pause and receive the importance of the dawn and noonday “Son” in your personal walk. How does it relate to your personal walk with Him?
The entire chapter of Psalm 37 is very powerful and so incredibly relevant to what many are facing and need to stand in today. Yahweh moved my Heart to include the entire chapter in the Message so you can read and meditate on it today.
As I was reading it, He guided me to understand the Hebrew word for righteousness which is “tsadiyq”. It translates as upright or straight (aka straight path, walking the narrow path with Yahweh in His ways). It is one who follows the path of Yahweh (as we just discussed in Psalm 37:5, commit your way to Yahweh). As we read Psalm 37, you will also notice it speaks about the wicked. The Hebrew word for wicked is “rasha”. It means to depart from Yahweh. As you enter to read Psalm 37 with Him today, apply the Hebrew meaning of righteousness and wicked to bring an even deeper understanding of this scripture. Ask the Ruach Hakodesh to reveal an even deeper meaning to you as He guides you across the pages of scripture.
1Do not fret over those who do evil;
do not envy those who do wrong.
2For they wither quickly like grass
3Trust in YAHWEH and do good;
dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness.
4Delight yourself in YAHWEH,
and He will give you the desires of your heart.
5Commit your way to YAHWEH;
trust in Him, and He will do it.
6He will bring forth your righteousness like the dawn,
your justice like the noonday sun.
7Be still before YAHWEH
and wait patiently for Him;
do not fret when men prosper in their ways,
when they carry out wicked schemes.
8Refrain from anger and abandon wrath;
do not fret—it can only bring harm.
9For the evildoers will be cut off,
but those who hope in YAHWEH will inherit the land.
10Yet a little while, and the wicked will be no more;
though you look for them, they will not be found.
11But the meek will inherit the land
and delight in abundant prosperity.
12The wicked scheme against the righteous
and gnash their teeth at them,
13but Yahweh laughs,
seeing that their day is coming.
14The wicked have drawn the sword
and bent the bow
to bring down the poor and needy,
to slay those whose ways are upright.
15But their swords will pierce their own hearts,
and their bows will be broken.
16Better is the little of the righteous
than the abundance of many who are wicked.
17For the arms of the wicked will be broken,
but YAHWEH upholds the righteous.
18YAHWEH knows the days of the blameless,
and their inheritance will last forever.
19In the time of evil they will not be ashamed,
and in the days of famine they will be satisfied.
20But the wicked and enemies of YAHWEH
will perish like the glory of the fields.
They will vanish;
like smoke they will fade away.
21The wicked borrow and do not repay,
but the righteous are gracious and giving.
22Surely those He blesses will inherit the land,
but the cursed will be destroyed.
23The steps of a man are ordered by YAHWEH
who takes delight in his journey.
24Though he falls, he will not be overwhelmed,
for YAHWEH is holding his hand.
25I once was young and now am old,
yet never have I seen the righteous abandoned
or their children begging for bread.
26They are ever generous and quick to lend,
and their children are a blessing.
27Turn away from evil and do good,
so that you will abide forever.
28For YAHWEH loves justice
and will not forsake His saints.
They are preserved forever,
but the offspring of the wicked will be cut off.
29The righteous will inherit the land
30The mouth of the righteous man utters wisdom,
and his tongue speaks justice.
31The law of his God is in his heart;
32Though the wicked lie in wait for the righteous,
33YAHWEH will not leave them in their power
or let them be condemned under judgment.
34Wait for YAHWEH and keep His way,
and He will raise you up to inherit the land.
When the wicked are cut off,
35I have seen a wicked, ruthless man
flourishing like a well-rooted native tree,
36yet he passed away and was no more;
though I searched, he could not be found.
37Consider the blameless and observe the upright,
for posterity awaits the man of peace.
38But the transgressors will all be destroyed;
the future of the wicked will be cut off.
39The salvation of the righteous is from YAHWEH;
He is their stronghold in time of trouble.
40YAHWEH helps and delivers them;
He rescues and saves them from the wicked,
because they take refuge in Him.
Yahweh Bless you and keep you, with MUCH Love!
