Beatus vir qui non abiit
Blessed is the man who has not walked in the counsel of the ungodly *
nor stood in the way of sinners, and has not sat in the seat of the scornful;
But his delight is in the law of the Lord, *
and on his law will he meditate day and night.
And he shall be like a tree planted by the waterside, *
that will bring forth his fruit in due season.
His leaf also shall not wither; *
and look, whatever he does, it shall prosper.
As for the ungodly, it is not so with them; *
but they are like the chaff, which the wind scatters away from the face of the earth.
Therefore the ungodly shall not be able to stand in the judgment; *
neither the sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, *
but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
