NSB(i) 1 Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of the scornful mockers. 2 But his delight is in the law of Jehovah (YHWH), and on his law he meditates (ponders) (speaks softly with deep thought) (studies) (contemplates) day and night. 3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water. It yields its fruit in season and its leaves do not wither. Whatever he does prospers. 4 This is not so for the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away. 5 Therefore the wicked will not stand (be upright) in the judgment. The sinners will not stand (endure) in the assembly of the righteous. 6 Jehovah knows (is fully aware of) the way of the righteous. But the way of the wicked will perish.
