Ɔtreneeni ne ɔdebɔneyɛfo

1Nhyira nka onipa a ontie nnebɔneyɛfo afotu, na onni nnebɔneyɛfo nneyɛe akyi, na onni wɔn a wodi fɛw nso akyi. Na mmom, ɔde anigye di Awurade mmara so, na odwen ho awia ne anadwo nyinaa. Ɔte sɛ nnua a enyin wɔ asuten ho, na ɛsow aba bere a ɛsɛ mu a ne nhaban no nguan. Odi nkonim wɔ biribiara a ɔyɛ mu.

The Message

Psalm 1

1How well God must like you—
    you don’t hang out at Sin Saloon,
    you don’t slink along Dead-End Road,
    you don’t go to Smart-Mouth College.

2-3 Instead you thrill to God’s Word,
    you chew on Scripture day and night.
You’re a tree replanted in Eden,
    bearing fresh fruit every month,
Never dropping a leaf,
    always in blossom.

4-5 You’re not at all like the wicked,
    who are mere windblown dust—
Without defense in court,
    unfit company for innocent people.

God charts the road you take.
The road they take is Skid Row.
