Verse 1Blest is he who loves God’s precepts,Who from sin restrains his feet,He who will not stand with sinners,He who shuns the scorners’ seat.
Verse 2Blest is he who makes the statutesOf the Lord his chief delight,In God’s law, devinely perfect,Meditating day and night.
Verse 3He is like a tree well plantedBy the flowing river’s side,Ever green of leaf and fruitful:Thus shall all his works abide.
Verse 4Like the driven chaff the wickedShall be swept from off the land;With the just they shall not gather,Nor shall in the judgment stand.
Verse 5Well the Lord will guard the righteous,For their way to Him is known;But the way of evil-doersShall by Him be over thrown
