Psalm 1

See commentary, Psalms 1-8 questions   |   Bible Dictionary   |   Chronological

The happiness of the godly.

1:1 Blessed is the man who doesnít walk in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stand in the way of sinners,
nor sit in the seat of scoffers;

1:2 but his delight is in Yahwehís law.
On his law he meditates day and night.

1:3 He will be like a tree planted by the streams of water,
that brings forth its fruit in its season,
whose leaf also does not wither.
Whatever he does shall prosper.

The unhappiness of the ungodly.

1:4 The wicked are not so,
but are like the chaff which the wind drives away.

1:5 Therefore the wicked shall not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

1:6 For Yahweh knows the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked shall perish.
