Psalms 1

(Psalms 1–41)
The Two Ways
1How happy is the man
who does not follow # Lit not walk in the advice of the wicked
or take # Lit stand in the path of sinners
or join a group # Or or sit in the seat of mockers! # Ps 26:4-5; Pr 4:14-15
2Instead, his delight is in the Lord’s instruction,
and he meditates on it day and night. # Jos 1:8; Ps 40:8; 119:14-16
3He is like a tree planted beside streams of water # Or beside irrigation canals
that bears its fruit in season # Lit in its season # Rv 22:2
and whose leaf does not wither. # Ps 92:12-14; Jr 17:8
Whatever he does prospers. # Dt 5:33
4The wicked are not like this;
instead, they are like chaff that the wind blows away. # Jb 21:18; Ps 35:5; Hs 13:3
5Therefore the wicked will not survive # Lit stand in the judgment, # Ps 5:5; 9:16; 76:7; Jr 25:31
and sinners will not be in the community of the righteous.
6For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, # Jb 34:21; Ps 37:18; Nah 1:7; Jn 10:14; 2Tm 2:19
but the way of the wicked leads to ruin. # Pr 21:12; Jn 3:16
