How Blessed is the Person

Oh the joys...
How Blessed...

Do not be:
"those who do not
follow the advice of the wicked,
or stand around with sinners,
or join in with mockers."

Do be:
2 "But they delight in the law of the Lord,
meditating on it day and night."

Result:
3 "They are like trees planted along the riverbank,
bearing fruit each season.
Their leaves never wither,
and they prosper in all they do."

Contrast of the Godly and the Wicked:
4 "But not the wicked!
They are like worthless chaff, scattered by the wind.
5 They will be condemned at the time of judgment.
Sinners will have no place among the godly.
6 For the Lord watches over the path of the godly,
but the path of the wicked leads to destruction."


Psalm 1
1 "Oh, the joys of those who do not
follow the advice of the wicked,
or stand around with sinners,
or join in with mockers.
2 But they delight in the law of the Lord,
meditating on it day and night.
3 They are like trees planted along the riverbank,
bearing fruit each season.
Their leaves never wither,
and they prosper in all they do.

4 But not the wicked!
They are like worthless chaff, scattered by the wind.
5 They will be condemned at the time of judgment.
Sinners will have no place among the godly.
6 For the Lord watches over the path of the godly,
but the path of the wicked leads to destruction."

How blessed is the person...
