Psalm 1:1-6 NLT
[1] Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers.

[2] But they delight in the law of the LORD, meditating on it day and night.

Trees by the streams of water.

[3] They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do.

[4] But not the wicked! They are like worthless chaff, scattered by the wind.

[5] They will be condemned at the time of judgment. Sinners will have no place among the godly.

[6] For the LORD watches over the path of the godly, but the path of the wicked leads to destruction.
