David in Psalm 32:1 declares a blessing to a certain type of person:
Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,
whose sin is covered.
Now, to be blessed is to find yourself in an enviable position.
It was the position that Israel found itself in as it was saved from Egypt by God.
It was the position of Solomon’s men and servants who got to hear and see that great king’s superior wisdom.
This is the position of the man in Psalm 1 who meditates on God’s word.
It’s also the position that one finds himself in when – like in Psalm 2 – he embraces God’s son lest he become angry when his anger is kindled a little.
Blessedness is the position that we see in Psalm 33 is the case for the nation whose God is the Lord. It’s also the position in Psalm 34 of one who takes refuge in the Lord.
And you and I are in this enviable position of being blessed - according to Psal 32:1 - if your transgressions are forgiven!
