Book 1: Psalms 1–41

Two Ways to Live

·Happy [Blessed] are those who don’t ·listen to [L walk in the counsel of] the wicked,
    who don’t ·go where sinners go [L stand in the way of sinners],
    who don’t ·do what evil people do [L sit in the seat of mockers].
They ·love [delight in] the Lord’s ·teachings [laws; instructions],
    and they ·think about [meditate on] those ·teachings [laws; instructions] day and night.
They are like a tree planted by ·a river [L streams of water; C full of life, strong, vibrant].
    The tree produces fruit in season,
    and its leaves don’t ·die [wither].
Everything they do will ·succeed [prosper].
But wicked people are not like that.
    They are like chaff that the wind blows away [C dead, unstable].
So the wicked will not ·escape God’s punishment [L stand in the judgment].
    Sinners will not ·worship with God’s people [L be in the assembly of the righteous].
This is because the Lord ·takes care of his people [L knows the way of the righteous],
    but the way of the wicked will be destroyed.
