Psalm 1:1-4 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

BOOK 1

The Righteous and the Wicked Contrasted.

How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
Nor stand in the [a]path of sinners,
Nor sit 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 firmly planted by [b]streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season
And its [c]leaf does not wither;
And [d]in whatever he does, he prospers.

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

Psalm 1:1-4 New International Version (NIV)

BOOK I

Psalms 1–41

Psalm 1

Blessed is the one
    who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
    or sit in the company of mockers,
but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
    and who meditates on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
    which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
    whatever they do prospers.

Not so the wicked!
    They are like chaff
    that the wind blows away.

Psalm 1:1-4 Amplified Bible (AMP)

Book One

The Righteous and the Wicked Contrasted.

[a]Blessed [fortunate, prosperous, and favored by God] is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked [following their advice and example],
Nor stand in the path of sinners,
Nor sit [down to rest] in the seat of [b]scoffers (ridiculers).

But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And on His law [His precepts and teachings] he [habitually] meditates day and night.

And he will be like a tree firmly planted [and fed] by streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season;
Its leaf does not wither;
And in whatever he does, he prospers [and comes to maturity].


The wicked [those who live in disobedience to God’s law] are not so,
But they are like the chaff [worthless and without substance] which the wind blows away.

Footnotes:

  1. Psalm 1:1 This has been called “The Preface Psalm” because in some respects it introduces the complete book of Psalms as a godly message. It opens with a benediction, “Blessed,” as does the Sermon on the Mount (Matt 5:3).
  2. Psalm 1:1 I.e. shallow thinkers who are quick to mock or disdain.

Salmos 1:1-4 Almeida Revista e Corrigida 2009 (ARC)

A felicidade dos justos e o castigo dos ímpios

Bem-aventurado o varão que não anda segundo o conselho dos ímpios, nem se detém no caminho dos pecadores, nem se assenta na roda dos escarnecedores. Antes, tem o seu prazer na lei do Senhor, e na sua lei medita de dia e de noite. Pois será como a árvore plantada junto a ribeiros de águas, a qual dá o seu fruto na estação própria, e cujas folhas não caem, e tudo quanto fizer prosperará.

Não são assim os ímpios; mas são como a moinha que o vento espalha.

Salmos 1:1-4 Nova Versão Internacional (NVI-PT)

PRIMEIRO LIVRO

Salmo 1

Como é feliz aquele
    que não segue o conselho dos ímpios,
não imita a conduta dos pecadores,
    nem se assenta na roda dos zombadores!
Ao contrário, sua satisfação
    está na lei do Senhor,
e nessa lei medita dia e noite.
É como árvore plantada
    à beira de águas correntes:
Dá fruto no tempo certo
    e suas folhas não murcham.
Tudo o que ele faz prospera!

Não é o caso dos ímpios!
São como palha que o vento leva.
