Psalm 1 New Revised Standard Version

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

The Righteous and the Ungodly

1 1  Happy are those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or take the path that sinners tread, or sit in the seat of scoffers; 2  but their delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law they meditate day and night. 3  They are like trees planted by streams of water, which yield their fruit in its season, and their leaves do not wither. In all that they do, they prosper.

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 watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.
