Psalm 1

1 The truly happy person doesn't follow wicked advice, doesn't stand on the road of sinners, and doesn't sit with the disrespectful.
2 Instead of doing those things, these persons love the LORD's Instruction, and they recite God's Instruction day and night!
3 They are like a tree replanted by streams of water, which bears fruit at just the right time and whose leaves don't fade. Whatever they do succeeds.
4 That's not true for the wicked! They are like dust that the wind blows away.
5 And that's why the wicked will have no standing in the court of justice— neither will sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
6 The LORD is intimately acquainted with the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked is destroyed.
