I
 
The Righteous and the Wicked Contrasted
 
 
[1]  BLESSED 1 is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the wicked,
Nor standeth in the way of sinners,
Nor sitteth in the seat of scoffers:
[2]  But his delight is in the law of Jehovah;
And on his law doth he meditate day and night.
[3]  And he shall be like a tree planted by the streams of water,
That bringeth forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also doth not wither;
And whatsoever 2 he doeth shall prosper.
[4]  The wicked are not so,
But are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
[5]  Therefore the wicked shall not stand in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
[6]  For Jehovah knoweth the way of the righteous;
But the way of the wicked shall perish.
 
Note 1. Or, Happy. [back]
Note 2. Or, in whatsoever he doeth he shall prosper. [back]
