"BLESSED (HAPPY, fortunate, to be envied) is he who has forgiveness of his transgression continually exercised upon him"

1. Blessed are someone to be envied. You don't have any money, no car, your house can only fit you, your wife and your son but you are happy from within, Someone makes you happy, not those seen by the naked eye but that Someone is Invisible who lives from within and inside of you.

Psalms 40:4 (Amplified Bible)

Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who makes the Lord his refuge and trust, and turns not to the proud or to followers of false gods.

Psalms 84:12 (Amplified Bible)

O Lord of hosts, blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who trusts in You [leaning and believing on You, committing all and confidently looking to You, and that without fear or misgiving]!

On the other hand, people with latest cars, latest gadgets and their house is as huge as the whitehouse, seem to be always so busy, neglecting their families and earning more money for themselves but is robbed of happiness.

B. Forgotten and forgiven

"whose sin is covered"

Romans 4:6-8 (Amplified Bible)

Thus David congratulates the man and pronounces a blessing on him to whom God credits righteousness apart from the works he does:

Blessed and happy and to be envied are those whose iniquities are forgiven and whose sins are covered up and completely buried.

Blessed and happy and to be envied is the person of whose sin the Lord will take no account nor reckon it against him.

GOD is our covering, the blood of JESUS CHRIST covers over our sins.

Ephesians 2:13 (Amplified Bible)

But now in Christ Jesus, you who once were [so] far away, through (by, in) the blood of Christ have been brought near.

Hebrews 9:14 (Amplified Bible)

How much more surely shall the blood of Christ, Who by virtue of [His] eternal Spirit [His own preexistent divine personality] has offered Himself as an unblemished sacrifice to God, purify our consciences from dead works and lifeless observances to serve the [ever] living God?
