Blessed are those1 who do not walk2 in step with the wicked3 or stand in the way4 that sinners take5 or sit6 in the company of mockers,72
but who delight8 in the law of the LORD9 and meditate10 on his law day and night.
They are like a tree11 planted by streams12 of water,13 which yields its fruit14 in season and whose leaf15 does not wither-- whatever they do prospers.164
Not so the wicked! They are like chaff17 that the wind blows away.
Therefore the wicked will not stand18 in the judgment,19 nor sinners in the assembly20 of the righteous.
For the LORD watches over21 the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will be destroyed.22
