Tehilim Chapter 1

tehilim 016


1. Happy is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scorners.
2. But whose delight is in the Torah of the Lord; and in his Torah he meditates day and night.
3. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season; its leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper. 4. The wicked are not so; but are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
5. Therefore the wicked shall not stand in the judgment, nor the sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6. For the Lord knows the way of the righteous: but the way of the wicked shall perish.
