Capulets & Montagues – Thought Experiment

“Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.” ~Psalm 37:4

(1) Pre-Delight Desires: Is this referring to the fulfillment of a set of desires on account of delighting ourselves in the Lord?

or

(2)  Post-Delight Desires: Is this referring to being given brand new desires on account of delighting ourselves in the Lord?

or

(3) Both?

~ Possibly something similar here:

“If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.” ~ John 15:7

~ Are we referring to Pre-Abiding Wishes or Post-Abiding Wishes or both?

Capulets and Montagues…

(1) Pre-Delighting/Abiding Desires: Is it that Romeo Montague wishes-for/desires Juliet and is told that he needs to go abide/delight for a while in the Capulet’s castle and thus be given Juliet’s hand?

or

(2)  Post-Delighting/Abiding Desires: Is it that Romeo does not even know that Juliet exists and is told that if he goes and lives in the Capulet castle for sometime, then he will take notice of Juliet and find himself with desires for her?

or

(3) Both?

~ Now comes the most(!) important question which only just now occurred to me  => Why the heck am I even wondering about this????? It seems so persnickety.
