1:1 Blessed is the man
who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners,
nor sits in the seat of the scornful.
2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
and in His law he meditates day and night.
3 And he will be like a tree planted by rivers of water,
which gives its fruit in its season,
and its leaf does not wither;
and what he does prospers.
4 The wicked are not so,
but are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6 For the LORD knows the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked will perish.
 Rivers: channels, canals, streams.
 Gives: yields; KJV: brings forth.
