Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 O the happiness of that one, who Hath not walked in the counsel of the wicked. And in the way of sinners hath not stood, And in the seat of scorners hath not sat; 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 -- in the law of Jehovah [is] his delight, And in His law he doth meditate by day and by night: 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night.
3 And he hath been as a tree, Planted by rivulets of water, That giveth its fruit in its season, And its leaf doth not wither, And all that he doth he causeth to 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: But -- as chaff that wind driveth away! 4 Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away.
5 Therefore the wicked rise not in judgment, Nor sinners in the company of the righteous, 5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
6 For Jehovah is knowing the way of the righteous, And the way of the wicked is lost! 6 For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.
