Psalm 1 New American Standard Bible

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

The Righteous and the Ungodly

1 1  How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked , Nor stand in the [1] path of sinners , Nor sit in the seat of scoffers ! 2  But his delight is in the law of the Lord , And in His law he meditates day and night . 3  He will be like a tree firmly planted by [2]streams of water , Which yields its fruit in its season And its [3]leaf does not wither ; And [4]in whatever e he does , he prospers .

4  The wicked are not so , But they are like chaff which the wind drives away . 5  Therefore e the wicked will not stand in the judgment , Nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous . 6  For the Lord [5] knows the way of the righteous , But the way of the wicked will perish .
