1 Blessed is the one(A) who does not walk(B) in step with the wicked(C) or stand in the way(D) that sinners take(E) or sit(F) in the company of mockers,(G) 2 but whose delight(H) is in the law of the Lord,(I) and who meditates(J) on his law day and night. 3 That person is like a tree(K) planted by streams(L) of water,(M) which yields its fruit(N) in season and whose leaf(O) does not wither— whatever they do prospers.(P)
4 Not so the wicked! They are like chaff(Q) that the wind blows away. 5 Therefore the wicked will not stand(R) in the judgment,(S) nor sinners in the assembly(T) of the righteous.
6 For the Lord watches over(U) the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.(V)
