Psalm 1


Happy the man
who never follows the advice of the wicked
or loiters on the way that sinner take,
or sits about with scoffers,
but finds his pleasure in the Law of Yahweh,
and murmurs His Law day and night.

He is like a tree that is planted
by water streams,
yielding its fruit in season,
its leaves never fading;
success attends all he does.
It is nothing like this with the wicked, nothing like this!

No, these are like chaff
blown away in the wind.
The wicked will not stand firm when Judgement comes,
nor sinners when the virtuous assemble.
For Yahweh takes care of the way the virtuous go,
but the way of the wicked is doomed.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I have transcribed the psalms so that they are easily accessible to anyone who wants to read them and especially for anyone that does not have a Bible. If you would like to read them, I encourage you to. The Psalms and some of the prayers are not of my own work, but I have transcribed them for spiritual purposes. All of the other poems are my own work. This psalm comes from the Jerusalem Bible. I have transcribed it so that you can read it. I hope you enjoy it.
