|The Righteous and the Wicked Contrasted|
| ||BLESSED 1 is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the wicked,|
Nor standeth in the way of sinners,
Nor sitteth in the seat of scoffers:
| ||But his delight is in the law of Jehovah;|
And on his law doth he meditate day and night.
| ||And he shall be like a tree planted by the streams of water,|
That bringeth forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also doth not wither;
And whatsoever 2 he doeth shall prosper.
| ||The wicked are not so,|
But are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
| ||Therefore the wicked shall not stand in the judgment,|
Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
| ||For Jehovah knoweth the way of the righteous;|
But the way of the wicked shall perish.
