New Living Translation:
“The way of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, which shines ever brighter until the full light of day.”(Proverbs 4:18)
“The ways of right-living people glow with light; the longer they live, the brighter they shine.
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition:
“But the path of the [uncompromisingly] just and righteous is like the light of dawn, that shines more and more (brighter and clearer) until [it reaches its full strength and glory in] the perfect day [to be prepared].
Contemporary English Version:
“The lifestyle of good people is like sunlight at dawn that keeps getting brighter until broad daylight.”
Beloved, The "just" man is one that is made righteous through the righteousness of Christ imputed to him; and who is created anew in Christ, in righteousness and true holiness; and, under the influence of divine grace, lives soberly, righteously, and godly. Such man has the Lord for his light, on him the “Sun of righteousness” is risen as “the light of the morning, and this light, that is, his knowledge of God, will become clearer and clearer till the “perfect day,” when he shall see Him as He is.
Beloved, as the light shines clearer and brighter, so does His true grace, faith, hope, love, patience, humility, obedience, etc grows and increases more and more upon us unto the perfect day. The more you live your life according to God’s plan, the more you shine forth His glory.
