Psalm 1:1-4 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

Book One

Psalm 1[a]

Blessed (happy, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, their plans and purposes], nor stands [submissive and inactive] in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down [to relax and rest] where the scornful [and the mockers] gather.

But his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord, and on His law (the precepts, the instructions, the teachings of God) he habitually meditates (ponders and studies) by day and by night.

And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of water, ready to bring forth its fruit in its season; its leaf also shall not fade or wither; and everything he does shall prosper [and come to maturity].

Not so the wicked [those disobedient and living without God are not so]. But they are like the chaff [worthless, dead, without substance] which the wind drives away.

Footnotes:

  1. Psalm 1:1 This has been called “The Preface Psalm” because in some respects it may be considered “the text upon which the whole of the Psalms make up a divine sermon.” It opens with a benediction, “Blessed,” as does our Lord’s Sermon on the Mount (Matt. 5:3).

Psalm 1:1-4 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

BOOK I
(Psalms 1–41)

Psalm 1

The Two Ways

How happy is the man
who does not follow[a] the advice of the wicked
or take[b] the path of sinners
or join a group[c] of mockers!
Instead, his delight is in the Lord’s instruction,
and he meditates on it day and night.
He is like a tree planted beside streams of water[d]
that bears its fruit in season[e]
and whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever he does prospers.

The wicked are not like this;
instead, they are like chaff that the wind blows away.

Psalm 1:1-5 The Message (MSG)

How well God must like you—
    you don’t hang out at Sin Saloon,
    you don’t slink along Dead-End Road,
    you don’t go to Smart-Mouth College.

2-3 Instead you thrill to God’s Word,
    you chew on Scripture day and night.
You’re a tree replanted in Eden,
    bearing fresh fruit every month,
Never dropping a leaf,
    always in blossom.

4-5 You’re not at all like the wicked,
    who are mere windblown dust—
Without defense in court,
    unfit company for innocent people.

The Message (MSG)

Psalm 1:1-4 New King James Version (NKJV)

BOOK ONE

Psalms 1–41

The Way of the Righteous and the End of the Ungodly

Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the [a]ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he [b]meditates day and night.
He shall be like a tree
Planted by the [c]rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.

The ungodly are not so,
But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.

Salmos 1:1-4 Nova Traduҫão na Linguagem de Hoje 2000 (NTLH)

Primeiro livro (Salmos 1—41)

A verdadeira felicidade

Felizes são aqueles
que não se deixam levar
    pelos conselhos dos maus,
que não seguem o exemplo
    dos que não querem saber de Deus
e que não se juntam com os que zombam
    de tudo o que é sagrado!
Pelo contrário, o prazer deles
    está na lei do Senhor,
e nessa lei eles meditam dia e noite.
Essas pessoas são como árvores
    que crescem na beira de um riacho;
elas dão frutas no tempo certo,
e as suas folhas não murcham.
Assim também tudo o que
    essas pessoas fazem dá certo.

O mesmo não acontece com os maus;
eles são como a palha
    que o vento leva.
