Psalm 1

1 Blessed are they who have not walked in the counsel of the ungodly:
    nor followed the way of sinners, nor taken their seat amongst the scornful.
2 But their delight is in the law of the Lord:
    and on that law will they ponder day and night.
3 They are like trees planted beside streams of water:
    that yield their fruit in due season.
4 Their leaves also shall not wither:
    and look, whatever they do, it shall prosper.
5 As for the ungodly, it is not so with them:
    they are like the chaff which the wind scatters.
6 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand up at the judgement:
    nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
7 For the Lord cares for the way of the righteous:
    but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
