King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful . 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 the law of the LORD; 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 shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither ; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper . 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 ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away . 4 Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away.
5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
6 For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish . 6 For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.
