Psalm 1

BOOK 1

The Righteous and the Wicked Contrasted.

1How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
Nor stand in the [a]path of sinners,
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
He will be like a tree firmly planted by [b]streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season
And its [c]leaf does not wither;
And [d]in whatever he does, he prospers.

The wicked are not so,
But they are like chaff which the wind drives away.
Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
For the Lord [e]knows the way of the righteous,
But the way of the wicked will perish.

Salme 1

Velsignelsen ved at gøre Guds vilje

1Gud velsigner de mennesker,
    som ikke går efter gudløses råd,
står bag syndige handlinger,
    eller sidder og håner Herren,
men som ønsker at gøre hans vilje,
    og har hans ord i tanke både dag og nat.

De er som træer, der vokser ved vandløb
    og bærer frugt hver eneste høst,
og hvis blade altid er grønne.
    Alt, hvad de gør, lykkes for dem.

Anderledes er det med de gudløse.
    De er som avner, vinden blæser bort.
På dommens dag står de straf skyldige,
    de hører ikke hjemme blandt Guds folk.
Herren hjælper dem, der gør hans vilje,
    men de gudløses vej ender i afgrunden.
