    Definitions for Psalms 106:3

    Blessed - Happy.

    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 106:3

    Blessed are they that keep judgment, and he that doeth righteousness at all times - How near do the Anglo-Saxon, the ancient Scottish Version, and the present translation, approach to each other!

    Anglo-Saxon.

    "Blessed they that holdeth doom, and doth righteousness in ilkere tide."

    Anglo-Scottish.

    Blisful tha that kepes dome, and duse rightwisnes in ilk tyme.

    Those are truly blessed, or happy, whose hearts are devoted to God, and who live in the habit of obedience. Those, the general tenor of whose life is not conformed to the will of God, have no true happiness.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 106:3

    Blessed are they that keep judgment - They are blessed, for their conduet is right, and it leads to happiness. The Hebrew is, "the keepers of judgment;" that is, they who observe the rules of justice in their conduct, or who are governed by the principles of integrity.

    And he that doeth righteousness at all times - All who yield obedience to just law - whether a nation or an individual. The psalm is designed to illustrate this "by contrast;" that is, by showing, in the conduct of the Hebrew people, the consequences of "disobedience," and thus impliedly what would have been, and what always must be, the consequences of the opposite course. Compare Psalm 15:1-5.
