Psalm 1

NIRV 1 Blessed is the one who obeys the law of the Lord. He doesn't follow the advice of evil people. He doesn't make a habit of doing what sinners do. He doesn't join those who make fun of the LORD and his law. NIV 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. NIRV 2 Instead, he takes delight in the law of the Lord. He thinks about his law day and night. NIV 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. NIRV 3 He is like a tree that is planted near a stream of water. It always bears its fruit at the right time. Its leaves don't dry up. Everything godly people do turns out well. NIV 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. NIRV 4 Sinful people are not like that at all. They are like straw that the wind blows away. NIV 4 Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away. NIRV 5 When the LORD judges them, their life will come to an end. Sinners won't have any place among those who are godly. NIV 5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous. NIRV 6 The LORD watches over the lives of those who are godly. But the lives of sinful people will lead to their death. NIV 6 For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.
