Pro 29:6 In the transgression of an evil man there is a snare: but the righteous doth sing and rejoice.
An evil man is at war with himself. His conscience is against him or it may be seared and deadened by his sin. He continues on as a living dead person. The righteous man, the man who loves God and is forgiven of sins, he has a clear conscience. He can sing and rejoice even in time of affliction. Those who are forgiven of sins by the redemption and salvation of the Lord Jesus Christ are given a new clean heart. They are given the Holy Spirit with the gifts of the Spirit and they have joy.
Gal 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Gal 5:23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
Gal 5:24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
Gal 5:25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
We are given a choice, to walk in the spirit or to act as unsaved men. Choose life and worship God with a clean heart.
Eph 5:19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
Col 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
Php 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.
