The Psalmist boldly acknowledges the fact that God makes him understand the importance of eternal life. The phrase “the path of life” is juxtaposed the path of death. It is Jesus who straightens our path. He is the way, the truth, and the light. Jesus is life and breath of our whole living and he came to the world to save us, sinners. Jesus Christ has revealed his deity to his people in the gospel of the truth. Those who believe the gospel of the Christ have come into His righteousness and faithfulness. As a result, Jesus makes them understand “the path of life” and warns them against the path of death.
