Psalms 1



1 Happy is the man
who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
and in the way of sinners stands not,
and in the seat of the scornful sits not.

2 But in the law* of Jehovah is his delight;
and in His law he meditates day and night.

3 And he shall be as a tree planted by streams of waters,
that gives its fruit in its time,
and its leaf does· not ·fade;
and all that he does shall prosper.

4 Not so the wicked;
but they are as the chaff which the wind blows·​·away.

5 Therefore the wicked shall not rise·​·up in the judgment,
nor sinners in the congregation of the just.

6 For Jehovah knows the way of the just;
but the way of the wicked shall perish.
