Psalm 1 King James Version

<< Job 42 | Psalm 1 | Psalm 2 >>

The Righteous and the Ungodly

1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, [1] nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 2  But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 3  And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; [2] and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

4  The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. 5  Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 6  For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
