"Blessed is the man that walks not in the counsel
of the ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners,
nor sits in the seat of the scornful.
But his delight is in the law of the LORD;
and on his law he meditates day and night.
And he shall be like as tree planted by the rivers
of water, that yields his fruit in his season;
his leaf also will not wither;
and whatever he does will prosper.
The ungodly are not so: but are like chaff
which the wind drives away.
Therefore the ungodly will not stand
in the judgment, nor sinners in the
congregation of the righteous.
For the LORD knows the way of the
righteous: but the way of the ungodly
(Psalms ch. 1 AKJV)
