Amplified Bible

Psalm 1

Book One

The Righteous and the Wicked Contrasted.

1[a]Blessed [fortunate, prosperous, and favored by God] is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked [following their advice and example],
Nor stand in the path of sinners,
Nor sit [down to rest] in the seat of [b]scoffers (ridiculers).

But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And on His law [His precepts and teachings] he [habitually] meditates day and night.

And he will be like a tree firmly planted [and fed] by streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season;
Its leaf does not wither;
And in whatever he does, he prospers [and comes to maturity].


The wicked [those who live in disobedience to God’s law] are not so,
But they are like the chaff [worthless and without substance] which the wind blows away.

Therefore the wicked will not stand [unpunished] in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

For the Lord knows and fully approves the way of the righteous,
But the way of the wicked shall perish.

  1. Psalm 1:1 This has been called “The Preface Psalm” because in some respects it introduces the complete book of Psalms as a godly message. It opens with a benediction, “Blessed,” as does the Sermon on the Mount (Matt 5:3).
  2. Psalm 1:1 I.e. shallow thinkers who are quick to mock or disdain.

Salmos 1

PRIMEIRO LIVRO

Salmo 1

Como é feliz aquele
    que não segue o conselho dos ímpios,
não imita a conduta dos pecadores,
    nem se assenta na roda dos zombadores!
Ao contrário, sua satisfação
    está na lei do Senhor,
e nessa lei medita dia e noite.
É como árvore plantada
    à beira de águas correntes:
Dá fruto no tempo certo
    e suas folhas não murcham.
Tudo o que ele faz prospera!

Não é o caso dos ímpios!
São como palha que o vento leva.
Por isso os ímpios
    não resistirão no julgamento,
nem os pecadores na comunidade dos justos.

Pois o Senhor aprova o[a] caminho dos justos,
    mas o caminho dos ímpios leva à destruição!
