For the LORD knows the way of the righteous,The wicked will not stand because the LORD is perfect in His judgment. He is flawless in His discernment. The LORD knows the way of the righteous; He approves of their path. Thus He rejects and disapproves of the way of the wicked.
But the way of the wicked will perish. (Psalm 1:6)
Through the Son, a path was constructed so that men can return to God. Though the righteous still sin, they repent of their sin, but the wicked refuse repentance. The wicked are of Cain, who refused to humble himself before God, even after he murdered his brother. The wicked will perish because God is just. God commands men to enter through the narrow gate— He has provided a way for men to be saved— through faith alone in Jesus Christ, but few there are that enter.
The way wicked will perish, but the righteous will endure— they will prosper for all eternity because they refused to bow their knee to wickedness. They put their trust those things revealed in the law of the LORD.
