New Living Translation:
“The Lord is a friend to those who fear him. He teaches them his covenant.”
New English Translation:
“The Lord’s loyal followers receive his guidance, and he reveals his covenantal demands to them.”
“The Lord tells his secrets to his followers. He teaches them about his agreement.”
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition:
“The secret [of the sweet, satisfying companionship] of the Lord have they who fear (revere and worship) Him, and He will show them His covenant and reveal to them its [deep, inner] meaning.”
Beloved, if you obey and fear God in all His commands, you are definitely His friend and His design is with you to direct and guide you in the right way, so that you will not miss your steps. The greatest happiness of a man in this perverse generation is to know the purpose and determinate counsels of God concerning his life and generations which cannot be understood without the illumination of God’s Holy Spirit. Those who fear the Lord are admitted to the intimacy of friendship with Him; are permitted to come into His presence, and to partake of His counsels; are allowed free access to Him or in other words have fellowship with Him. I hereby encourage you to truly and properly reverence Him,and be His true worshipper, so you can enjoy that glorious intimacy with Him.
