New Heart English Bible
1Blessed is the man who doesn't walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers;
2but his delight is in the Law of the LORD. On his Law he meditates day and night.
3He will be like a tree planted by the streams of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also does not wither. Whatever he does shall prosper.
4Not so with the wicked, not so; instead, they are like the chaff which the wind drives away from the surface of the ground.
5Therefore the wicked shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked shall perish.
