For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
Scripture says that God has kept the godly for himself. He knows his people by name and leads them into all paths of truth and righteousness. This is his amazing love that builds a perfect relationship God-Man. But God also knows that those who do not follow him, nor give keen to his statues and precepts shall fall and great was the fall thereof.
