| ||Psalm 1 Beatus vir qui non abiit|
|1||Happy are they who have not walked in the counsel of the wicked, *|
nor lingered in the way of sinners,
nor sat in the seats of the scornful!
|2||Their delight is in the law of the LORD, *|
and they meditate on his law day and night.
|3||They are like trees planted by streams of water,|
bearing fruit in due season, with leaves that do not wither; *
everything they do shall prosper.
|4||It is not so with the wicked; *|
they are like chaff which the wind blows away.
|5||Therefore the wicked shall not stand upright when judgment comes, *|
nor the sinner in the council of the righteous.
|6||For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, *|
but the way of the wicked is doomed.
