The clods of the torrent valley 1  are sweet to him; behind him everybody follows in procession, and before him goes a countless throng.

NET © Notes

tn The clods are those that are used to make a mound over the body. And, for a burial in the valley, see Deut 34:6. The verse here sees him as participating in his funeral and enjoying it. Nothing seems to go wrong with the wicked.
