Psalm 1

Psalm 1

1: Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers.

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, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.

4: Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away.

5: Therefore the wicked will not stand in judgement, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

6: For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.
