kando ya vijito vya maji,

ambao huzaa matunda kwa majira yake

na majani yake hayanyauki.

Lolote afanyalo hufanikiwa.

Huzuni Ya Waovu

wala wenye dhambi katika kusanyiko la wenye haki.

6Kwa maana Bwana huziangalia njia za mwenye haki,

bali njia ya waovu itaangamia.

King James Version

Psalms 1:1-6

1Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.1.1 ungodly: or, wicked

2But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

3And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.1.3 wither: Heb. fade

4The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

5Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

6For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
