New King James Version (NKJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits 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 he meditates day and night. 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night.
3 He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does 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 drives 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 knows 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.
