Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the a]”>[a]ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he b]”>[b]meditates day and night.
3 He shall be like a tree
Planted by the c]”>[c]rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.
4 The ungodly are not so,
But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6 For the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
But the way of the ungodly shall perish.
If you have put your trust in Jesus Christ you are blessed.
Two ways are summarized in this passage: the way of the righteous and the way of the wicked.
We can choose to live a blessed life or one against a blessed life.
The blessed person does not:
- Walk in the counsel of the ungodly.
