1 ·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]. 2 They ·love [delight in] the Lord’s ·teachings [laws; instructions], and they ·think about [meditate on] those ·teachings [laws; instructions] day and night. 3 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]. 4 But wicked people are not like that. They are like chaff that the wind blows away [C dead, unstable]. 5 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]. 6 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.
