Psalm 1

The Way of the Righteous and the End of the Ungodly

1 Blessed ais the man

Who walks not in the counsel of the 1ungodly,

Nor stands in the path of sinners,

bNor sits in the seat of the scornful;

2 But chis delight is in the law of the Lord,

dAnd in His law he 2meditates day and night.

3 He shall be like a tree

ePlanted by the 3rivers of water,

That brings forth its fruit in its season,

Whose leaf also shall not wither;

And whatever he does shall fprosper.

4 The ungodly are not so,

But are glike the chaff which the wind drives away.

5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,

Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

6 For hthe Lord knows the way of the righteous,

But the way of the ungodly shall perish.
