Two Ways to Live
1Happy is the person who doesn’t listen to the wicked.
He doesn’t go where sinners go.
He doesn’t do what bad people do.
2He loves the Lord’s teachings.
He thinks about those teachings day and night.
3He is strong, like a tree planted by a river.
It produces fruit in season.
Its leaves don’t die.
Everything he does will succeed.
4But wicked people are not like that.
They are like useless chaff
that the wind blows away.
5So the wicked will not escape God’s punishment.
Sinners will not worship God with good people.
6This is because the Lord protects good people.
But the wicked will be destroyed.
