6 He hath
said ['amar] in his heart, [leb] I shall
not be moved: [mowt] for I shall never [dowr][dowr] be in adversity. [ra`] KJV-Interlinear
6 He says
to himself, "I shall not be moved; Throughout all generations I shall not
be in adversity." NASB
He, continues to portray the thoughts and beliefs of the wicked.
He says in his heart. The word for heart describes, through symbolism, the functions of the physical heart which pumps the blood throughout the body, but here it is in terms of the pumping or circulation of thought throughout the soul.
This indicates an ingrained and established belief process. This is not a spontaneous thought or emotional reaction, or something that happens haphazardly. This is the attitude that the individual has entrenched in his thoughts and beliefs and of which overwhelmingly influences his thoughts and beliefs and opinions, etc.
I shall not be moved, indicates a confidence in ones beliefs, based on ones adopted views of life. The individual believes firmly that what he thinks is correct with regard to his life, with regard to the world around him, with regard to his future. He knows what he believes and believes what he knows. This is common among people who lack doctrine, Psa. 49:11, Job. 21:9. They are detached from reality and live under the illusion of their beliefs.
The wicked lack truth, therefore they lack discernment and therefore they lack the ability to see the differences between truth and lies, and therefore they are easily fooled and deceived. Neither IQ, wealth, status, nor anything else in this world is able to compensate for the lack of truth, to correct ones thinking.
When truth is lacking in the soul, a genius is no different than a moron.
The wicked, or spiritually dysfunctional person wrongly believes that their station in life is fully under their control, that their life will go on without interruption. They fully ignore history and cemeteries and life spans, and death, and the fact that generations of past are no longer here, and their possessions no longer belong to them.
But somehow they think they are the smarter and the brighter and the better equipped to do better than those who came before.
