I was reading in Figures Of Speech Used In The Bible by E.W. Bullinger under Parallelism and he say's regarding Psalm 1:1, walketh, standeth, sitteth. That these gradations point us to the fact that there is a mine of truth contained in the verse, on which a volume might be written. The tenses also have their lessons for us too, for they imply "that never did walk ... stand... sit' : And so help to teach us that in the first Psalm David speaketh "concering" i.e. "with an ultimate reference to "Christ: (see Acts 2:25). In fact, this first Psalm speaks of Christ as the one perfect Man; while the second speaks of him as the one perfect King. (Page 350.)

Can some one explain how the tenses imply this. Would he be talking of the Hebrew tenses or the English?
