Psalm 1 God Speaks Today
1 Happy is the man
who does not follow the counsel of the wicked,
nor go in the way of sinners,
nor make common cause with those who mock God,
2 but puts his love in the law of the Lord
and meditates in it. and day
3 That man is like a tree
planted on the bank of a river,
which bears its fruit in its time
and its leaves never wither.
Everything he does, he does well!
4 The same does not happen to the wicked,
for they are like straw that the wind carries away.
5 Therefore the wicked will fall under the judgment of God
and will have no part in the community of the righteous.
6 The Lord looks after the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked leads to disaster.
