Blessed is the man who walks NOT in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of the sinners,
nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
but his delight is in the law of the Lord
and on his law he meditates,
day and night meditates.

In all that he does, he prospers.
The wicked not so, but are like chaf
that the wind drives away

Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgement,
nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;
for the Lord knows the way of the righteous;
but the way of the wicked will perish.
