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.
But◦ in the law* of Jehovah is his delight;and in His law he meditates day and night.
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.
Not so the wicked;but◦ they are as the chaff which the wind blows··away.
Therefore the wicked shall not rise··up in the judgment,nor◦ sinners in the congregation of the just.
For Jehovah knows the way of the just;but the way of the wicked shall perish.
