The Way of the Righteous and Wicked
How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
Nor stand in the way of sinners,
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers! 2
But his delight is in the law of Yahweh,
And in His law he meditates day and night. 3
And he will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season
And its leaf does not wither;
And in whatever he does, he prospers.
The wicked are not so,
But they are like chaff which the wind drives away. 5
Therefore the wicked will not rise in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 6
For Yahweh knows the way of the righteous,
But the way of the wicked will perish.
