Psalms 1

PSALM 1

Blessed is a Man

Blessed is a man who went not in counsel of impious ones, and [2in 3the way 4of sinners 1stood not], and [2upon 3a chair 4of mischievous ones 1sat not]. But [2is in 3the 4law 5of the  lord 1his will]; and in his law he shall meditate day and night. And he will be as the tree being planted by the outlet of the waters, which [2his fruit 1gives] in his season, and his leaf shall not drop down; and all as much as he should do will greatly prosper. Not so the impious, not so; but is as dust which [3casts forth 1the 2wind] from the face of the earth. On account of this [3shall not 4rise up 1the 2impious] in judgment, nor the sinners in the counsel of the just. For the  lord knows the way of the just, but the way of impious ones shall perish.
