1 Blessed is the mana
who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners,
nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
and on his law he meditates day and night.
planted by streams of water
that yields its fruit in its season,
and its leaf does not wither.
In all that he does, he prospers.
but are like chaff that the wind drives away.
nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;
but the way of the wicked will perish.
Psalms, 1 psalm. English Standard Version.
