Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 Blessed is the man who hath not walked in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stood in the way of sinners, nor sat in the chair of pestilence: 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 will is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he shall 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 which is planted near the running waters, which shall bring forth its fruit, in due season. And his leaf shall not fall off: and all whatsoever he shall do 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 Not so the wicked, not so: but like the dust, which the wind driveth from the face of the earth. 4 Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away.
5 Therefore the wicked shall not rise again in judgment: nor sinners in the council of the just. 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 just: and 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.
