BOOK I

Psalms 1–41

Psalm 1

Blessed is the person who obeys the law of the Lord.
    They don’t follow the advice of evil people.
They don’t make a habit of doing what sinners do.
    They don’t join those who make fun of the Lord and his law.
Instead, the law of the Lord gives them joy.
    They think about his law day and night.
That kind of person is like a tree that is planted near a stream of water.
    It always bears its fruit at the right time.
Its leaves don’t dry up.
    Everything godly people do turns out well.

Sinful people are not like that at all.
    They are like straw
    that the wind blows away.
When the Lord judges them, their life will come to an end.
    Sinners won’t have any place among those who are godly.

The Lord watches over the lives of godly people.
    But the lives of sinful people will lead to their death.

詩篇 1

卷一: 詩篇1—41

有福之人

11-2 不從惡人的計謀,
不與罪人為伍,
不和輕慢上帝的人同流合污,
只喜愛耶和華的律法,
晝夜默誦,
這樣的人有福了!
他就像溪水旁的樹木——
按時結果子,
葉子也不凋零。
他必凡事亨通。
惡人的光景卻截然不同!
他們就像被風吹散的糠秕。
惡人在審判之日必無法逃脫,
罪人在義人的聚會中必站不住腳。
因為耶和華看顧義人的腳步,
惡人的道路必通向滅亡。
