Two Ways to Live

Happy are those who don’t listen to the wicked,
    who don’t go where sinners go,
    who don’t do what evil people do.
They love the Lord’s teachings,
    and they think about those teachings day and night.
They are strong, like a tree planted by a river.
    The tree produces fruit in season,
    and its leaves don’t die.
Everything they do will succeed.

BOOK I

Psalms 1–41

Blessed is the one(A)
    who does not walk(B) in step with the wicked(C)
or stand in the way(D) that sinners take(E)
    or sit(F) in the company of mockers,(G)
but whose delight(H) is in the law of the Lord,(I)
    and who meditates(J) on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree(K) planted by streams(L) of water,(M)
    which yields its fruit(N) in season
and whose leaf(O) does not wither—
    whatever they do prospers.(P)
