(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 26:4-5Pr 4:14-15
2Instead, his delight is in the Lord’s instruction,
and he meditates on it day and night. #Jos 1:8Ps 40:8119:14-16
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 92:12-14Jr 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 21:18Ps 35:5Hs 13:3
5Therefore the wicked will not survive # Lit stand in the judgment, #Ps 5:5|NoBook| 9:16|NoBook| 76:7Jr 25:31
and sinners will not be in the community of the righteous.
6For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, #Jb 34:21Ps 37:18Nah 1:7Jn 10:142Tm 2:19
but the way of the wicked leads to ruin. #Pr 21:12Jn 3:16
