The Light of the Righteous Continually Becomes Brighter

Proverbs 13:9 Updated American Standard Version (UASV)
The light of the righteous rejoices,[1]
    but the lamp of the wicked will be put out.

In the analogy here between the righteous and the wicked, we see that both have a light or lamp. The Hebrew words here translated light (Heb. or) and lamp (Heb. ner) are used interchangeably and are often used to signify life. – Proverbs 6:23; 20:20; 21:4; 24:20; Job 18:5-6; Psalm 119:105.

The light of the righteous rejoices: The light of the righteous continually becomes brighter. The Word of God is a lamp to getting the righteous one successfully through his daily life and, it is a light that offers the righteous one an illuminating view of his future, empowering him to see and follow the path of righteousness that leads to eternal happiness and satisfaction. – Psalm 119:105.

but the lamp of the wicked will be put out: The light or life of the wicked may seem bright, that is, prosperous and successful at times; but his eventuality will be darkness, where he will stumble in the absolute absence of light that is reflective of the eternal death that awaits him. The lamp of the wicked will be put out. In other words, this prosperous and successful life of his is short-lived. In the end, if his wicked ways alone do not do him in, God will extinguish his lamp of life in that he will not receive eternal life. – Proverbs 24:20.

The Word of God has infinite knowledge and wisdom of the Creator, to which only the righteous one has access. The wicked remain willfully blind to this life-saving knowledge. (2 Cor. 4:3-4) The more the righteous one grows in knowledge and understanding of God’s will and purposes (Matt. 7:21-23), the brighter the spiritual light becomes that guides him. This light is a source that brings joy. The light that the world of wicked mankind offers is fading and will eventually be extinguished. – 1 Timothy 6:20; 1 Corinthians 1:20; Colossians 2:8.
