The Psalms of David

Psalm 1

The history and edification of a beautiful endeavor

Blessed is the man who neither pursues the path of desolation,
nor upholds the counsel of sinners,
Nor sits in the circle of jesters,
but whose days and nights are occupied in perusing the Law.
For he becomes like the tree that is planted at the edge of the waters,
that delivers its fruit in season and its leaves whither not,
and whatever he does he brings to completion.
Unlike the depraved,
but like those who are enlightened by the Spirit.
This is why neither the depraved are upheld on the day of judgment,
nor the sinners at the congregation of the saints.
Whereas the Lord recognizes the way of the saints,
but the way of the depraved comes to naught.
