BOOK ONE: Psalms 1—41
The Way of the Righteous and the End of the Ungodly
1Blessed #Prov. 4:14is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
#Ps. 26:4, 5; Jer. 15:17Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
2But #Ps. 119:14, 16, 35his delight is in the law of the Lord,
#(Josh. 1:8)And in His law he meditates day and night.
3He shall be like a tree
#(Ps. 92:12–14); Jer. 17:8; Ezek. 19:10Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall #Gen. 39:2, 3, 23; Ps. 128:2prosper.
4The ungodly are not so,
But are #Job 21:18; Ps. 35:5; Is. 17:13like the chaff which the wind drives away.
5Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6For #Ps. 37:18; (Nah. 1:7; John 10:14; 2 Tim. 2:19)the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
But the way of the ungodly shall perish.
