Psalms 1-2: Blessed is he, who ...

Many of us know this by heart, and if not, it's a good one to commit to memory. Further more, it s a good one to put to practice.  If we want to be blessed, just do what God blesses, someone once said to me. That makes much sense, I say.

Psalm 1


BOOK I : Psalms 1-41


1 Blessed is the man


who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked


or stand in the way of sinners


or sit in the seat of mockers.


2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD,


and on his law he meditates day and night.




3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water,


which yields its fruit in season


and whose leaf does not wither.


Whatever he does prospers.




4 Not so the wicked!


They are like chaff


that the wind blows away.




5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,


nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.




6 For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous,


but the way of the wicked will perish.
