1 Blessed is the person
who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands on the road of sinners,
nor sits in the seat of scoffers.
2 But his delight is in Yahweh’s Torah.
On his Torah he meditates day and night.
3 He will be like a tree planted by the streams of water
that brings forth its fruit in its season,
whose leaf also does not wither.
And in whatever he does, he prospers.
4 It is not so with the wicked,
because they are like the chaff
that the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
6 For Yahweh knows the road of the righteous,
but the road of the wicked will perish.
