Psalm 1

Book One
The Way of the Righteous and the Wicked
1Blessed is the man#1:1 The singular Hebrew word for man (ish) is used here to portray a representative example of a godly person; see Preface
who #Prov. 4:14, 15 walks not in #Job 21:16 the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in #Prov. 1:10 the way of sinners,
nor #Ps. 26:4; Jer. 15:17 sits in #[Ps. 107:32] the seat of #Prov. 1:22; 3:34; 19:29; 21:24; 29:8; [Isa. 28:14]scoffers;
2but his #Ps. 112:1; 119:35, 47, 92 delight is in the law#1:2 Or instruction of the Lord,
and on his #Ps. 119:1, 97; Josh. 1:8law he meditates day and night.
3He is like #Jer. 17:8; Ezek. 19:10; [Num. 24:6; Job 29:19] a tree
planted by #Ps. 46:4 streams of water
that yields its fruit in its season,
and its #Ezek. 47:12; [Isa. 34:4] leaf does not wither.
# Gen. 39:3, 23; [Ps. 128:2; Isa. 3:10] In all that he does, he prospers.
4The wicked are not so,
but are like #See Job 21:18chaff that the wind drives away.
5Therefore the wicked #Ps. 5:5; 76:7; Nah. 1:6; Luke 21:36; Eph. 6:13 will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in #[Ezek. 13:9]the congregation of the righteous;
6for the Lord #Ps. 31:7; 37:18; 144:3; Nah. 1:7; [John 10:14; 2 Tim. 2:19] knows #Ps. 37:5the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked will perish.
