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.

복 있는 사람

1복 있는 사람은
악한 자들의 말을 듣지 않고 죄인들을 본받지 않으며
[a]하나님을 조롱하는 자들과
어울리지 않고
여호와의 율법을 즐거워하며
그 율법을 밤낮 묵상하는 자이다.
그는 시냇가에 심은 나무가
철을 따라 과실을 맺고
그 잎이 마르지 않는 것처럼
하는 일마다 다 잘 될 것이다.
그러나 악인들은 그렇지 않으니 그들은 바람에 나는
겨와 같을 뿐이다.
그러므로 악인들이
심판 날에 무사하지 못하고
죄인들이 의로운 자들 가운데
서지 못할 것이다.
의로운 사람의 길은
여호와께서 지키시나
악인의 길은 파멸에 이를 것이다.
