Psalms - Chapter 1 | New King James Version

  • 1. Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
  • 2. But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night.
  • 3. He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper.
  • 4. The ungodly are not so, But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
  • 5. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
  • 6. For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the ungodly shall perish.
