Psalm 1 Names of God Bible (NOG)

BOOK ONE

(Psalms 1–41)

Psalm 1

Blessed is the person who does not
    follow the advice of wicked people,
        take the path of sinners,
            or join the company of mockers.
Rather, he delights in the teachings of Yahweh
    and reflects on his teachings day and night.
He is like a tree planted beside streams—
    a tree that produces fruit in season
        and whose leaves do not wither.
    He succeeds in everything he does.[a]

Wicked people are not like that.
    Instead, they are like husks that the wind blows away.
That is why wicked people will not be able to stand in the judgment
    and sinners will not be able to stand where righteous people gather.

Yahweh knows the way of righteous people,
    but the way of wicked people will end.

Psalm 1 New International Version (NIV)

BOOK I

Psalms 1–41

Psalm 1

Blessed is the one
    who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
    or sit in the company of mockers,
but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
    and who meditates on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
    which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
    whatever they do prospers.

Not so the wicked!
    They are like chaff
    that the wind blows away.
Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
    nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,
    but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.
