Psalm 1

BOOK ONE (Psalms 1–41)
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.
