13 The Lord ['Adonay] shall
laugh [sachaq] at him: for he seeth [ra'ah] that his day [yowm] is
coming [bow']. KJV-Interlinear
13 but the Lord laughs at the wicked, for he sees that his day is
The Lord, ‘Adonay,’ is a reference to the specific God of Israel, namely the Son, whom we now call Jesus Christ, but here the term ‘Adonay,’ is a recognition of His sovereign authority over all that exists.
Laughs, is a reference to Gods view of mans empty efforts.
Man will try and try again, his own methods of elbowing his way through life.
All of mans efforts are a struggle against certain failure.
In arrogance, man tries to accomplish on his own, that which God controls.
Man has no control over himself let alone the entire universe, and especially the laws and rules that govern this universe and all that is in it.
Remember that God created the universe out of nothing. And that means that all of the rules and laws, so called, of the universe, are also a part of the definition and design of God.
So, when God eventually destroys this universe and creates a new one, then it stands to reason that there will be a new set of rules for that new and better universe.
Man, has so many limitations, that assuming that he can do as he pleases while ignoring God and ignoring truth, and the inevitable end of his life as well as the end of this universe, would seem to make any onlooker, amazed at the repeated futility of mans efforts in this regard.
God gives us all the information that we need in order to get through this life.
But man wants to define his own rules, his own religion, his own destiny, his own environment, and all of that is totally impossible.
People focus on this life now, and only on this life now, as though whatever it is that they are doing, will last forever. They try to make the world better, but in so doing, make it worse. They try to regulate society, but that only places the burdens of regulations on society. And the worst of it all, they try to re-invent their individual obligations and responsibilities in life, while ignoring the obligations and responsibilities which God has laid out for each of us.
In the end, there is nothing left but to laugh at the futility and empty efforts of everyone.
Because, in the end, everyone is going to leave this world, and everyone is going to face Jesus, one way or another, and all of history is going to come to an end.
What occurs after that is going to be better for those who prepare for it, and not so good for those who not prepare.
And even the preparation is based on Gods process, not mans, on what God wants you to do in order to be ready, not based on what you presume that you need to do for being ready.
