VERSE 1:
That man is blest who, fearing God,
from sin restrains his feet,
who will not stand with wicked men,
who shuns the scorners' seat.

VERSE 2:
For blest is he who makes God's law
his portion and delight,
and meditates upon that law
with gladness day and night.

VERSE 3:
That man is nourished like a tree
set by the rivers' side;
its leaf is green, its fruit is sure,
and thus his works abide.

VERSE 4:
The wicked, like the driven chaff,
are swept from off the land;
they shall not gather with the just,
nor in the judgment stand.

VERSE 5:
The Lord will guard the righteous well—
their way to Him is known;
the way of sinners, far from God,
shall soon be overthrown.
