Psalms 1–41

Psalm 1

Blessed is the man
    who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
nor stands in the path of sinners,
    nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
but his delight is in the law of the Lord,
    and in His law he meditates day and night.
He will be like a tree planted by the rivers of water,
    that brings forth its fruit in its season;
its leaf will not wither,
    and whatever he does will prosper.

The ungodly are not so,
    but are like the chaff
    which the wind drives away.
Therefore the ungodly will not stand in the judgment,
    nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

For the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
    but the way of the ungodly will perish.
