The Lord Knows the Way of the Righteous

"Nor stands in the path of sinners...
For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly shall perish. " (Psalm 1:1,6)
The term "way" in the Bible is always linked to a destination or destiny. To wander from the right way and be lost may invite compassion; but, to choose the wrong way and persist on it invites divine wrath.
Woe to them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, have run greedily in the error of Balaam for profit, and perished in the rebellion of Korah (Jude 1:11)
But, the LORD knows the way of the righteous.
Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: "The Lord knows those who are His," and, "Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity." (2Tim. 2:19)
