ALEPH.

(1) Undefiled.--Better, blameless or perfect.

Way.--See the same use without a qualifying epithet in Psalm 2:12. There was only-one way of safety and peace for an Israelite, here by the parallelism defined as "the law of Jehovah." But even heathen ethics bore witness to the same truth: "Declinandum de via sit modo ne summa turpitudo sequatur" (Cic, De Amicitia, 17).

Verse 1. - Blessed are the undefiled in the way; rather, the perfect, or those that are per feet (Revised Version). The "way" intended is, no doubt, "the way of righteousness" (Psalm 1:7; 23:3, etc.). Who walk in the Law of the Lord. Compare the introductory paragraph for the meaning of "Law" in this psalm. This clause is exegetical of the preceding.
