Psalm 1:1 KJV
Blessed* is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
Psalm 32:1 KJV
Blessed* is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
*Blessed-Hebrew:Esher (Eh-sher): Happiness, blessed, happy. (Same word for both verses.)
What seems as a glaring incongruity, is easily understood, when one realizes that the word blessed is translated as, happy.
Certainly the man who lives a righteous life is, happy.
Certainly the man who's sins have been forgiven is overly happy!
