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.

Footnotes

  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.

O Livro

Salmos 1

Primeiro Livro (Salmos 1-41)

1Feliz aquele que não se deixa ir atrás de gente má,
    que não vai pelo caminho dos pecadores,
    nem se senta na companhia dos escarnecedores.
Mas tem prazer em fazer o que Deus manda,
    meditando dia e noite nas suas leis.
Porque será como as árvores plantadas junto aos cursos de água,
    que dão fruto na época própria,
    e cujas folhas não murcham.
Todo o seu fruto é bom.

Mas não são assim os que vivem sem Deus!
São antes como a palha que o vento leva.
Por isso não resistirão quando vier o julgamento de Deus,
    não poderão ficar no ajuntamento dos justos.

Pois o Senhor conhece a conduta dos justos;
    mas o caminho dos ímpios conduz à perdição.
