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.
