1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the wicked, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
1:2 But his delight is in the law of ; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
1:3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
1:4 The wicked are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
1:5 Therefore the wicked shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
1:6 For knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the wicked shall perish.
