1: Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the wicked, and standeth not in the way of sinners, and sitteth not in the seat of scorners; 2: But his delight is in Jehovah's law, and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 3: And he [is] as a tree planted by brooks of water, which giveth its fruit in its season, and whose leaf fadeth not; and all that he doeth prospereth. 4: The wicked are not so; but are as the chaff which the wind driveth away. 5: Therefore the wicked shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous. 6: For Jehovah knoweth the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked shall perish.
