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  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 streams of water , Which yields its fruit in its season And its leaf does not wither ; And 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  knows the way of the righteous , But the way of the wicked will perish .
