Psalm 1

Blessed are the righteous—The ungodly will perish.

1 aBlessed is the man that bwalketh not in the ccounsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the dscornful.

2 But his adelight is in the blaw of the Lord; and in his law doth he cmeditate day and night.

3 And he shall be like a atree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall bprosper.

4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the achaff which the wind driveth away.

5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

6 For the Lord knoweth the way of the arighteous: but the way of the bungodly shall perish.
