Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the way of the sinners,
Nor sits 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 is like a tree
Planted by streams of water,
That yields its fruit in its season,
And its leaf does not wither.

The wicked are not so,
But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
Therefore the wicked shall not stand in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

For the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
But the way of the wicked shall perish.
