The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
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; 1 Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers.
2 But his delight is in Jehovah's law, and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates 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. 3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.
4 The wicked are not so; but are as the chaff which the wind driveth away. 4 Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away.
5 Therefore the wicked shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous. 5 Therefore the wicked will 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. 6 For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.
