From “Discipleship and Discipline”, by William H. Hicks, copyright March, 2005:

“The Hebrew word for good in this reference is “Towb”, which means moral goodness as contrasted with moral evil.  It also means good, right, pleasant, beautiful, excellent, lovely, delightful, joyful, fruitful, sound, righteous, virtue.  This listing brings to mind Paul’s admonition in Philippians 4: 8, “Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these things.”  This is the correct living of our lives.  This is the successful approach to our responsibilities as disciples.  This view sheds new light on the Lord’s command to Adam and Eve in Genesis 1: 28 to “be fruitful, and multiply”.”
