Bless the man who avoids evil,
Nor stands in the way of sinners;
Nor sits with those of the devil,
For they are heavenly winners.
Delight in the Law of the Lord,
Meditate on it day and night;
Being in step in one accord,
And be a blessing in His sight.
Like a tree planted by a stream.
In its season its fruit will yield;
Leaves not wither for its esteem,
Will be prosperous in the field.
The ungodly will never be,
Like chaff that the wind drives away;
They are merely too blind to see,
Because they keep going astray.
In judgment, evil cannot stand,
Nor sinners before the righteous;
Rather will be on sinking sand,
And condemned by godly justice.
For the Lord is knowing the way,
That the ungodly shall perish;
Since the righteous will never stray,
Being a delight God will cherish.
