Psalm 1


The Way of the Righteous and the Wicked



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.
