PSALM 1

« Job 42 | Psalm 1 | Psalm 2 »

The Way of the Righteous and the Wicked
1:1
Blessed is the man
who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners,
nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
2
but his delight is in the law of the Lord,
and on his law he meditates day and night.

3
He is like a tree
planted by streams of water
that yields its fruit in its season,
and its leaf does not wither.
In all that he does, he prospers.
4
The wicked are not so,
but are like chaff that the wind drives away.

5
Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;
6
for the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked will perish.
