Psalm 1

Two Responses to God’s Word

The Way of the Godly Leads to Blessing

How blessed is the man
    who does not walk in the advice of the wicked,
    who does not stand on the path with sinners,
    and who does not sit in a meeting with mockers.
But his delight is in the teaching[b] of the Lord,
and on his teaching he meditates day and night.
He is like a tree planted beside streams of water,
    which yields its fruit in season,
    and its leaves do not wither.
Everything he does prospers.


  1. Psalm 1:1

    Psalms is the prayer book and hymnbook of the Bible. Most of the psalms were written by David and his contemporaries about 1000 bc. One was written by Moses in about 1400 bc, and a few may have been written in the 6th century bc.

    The 150 psalms were carefully arranged into five books by the compiler of Psalms. Headings have been added to the translation to identify these five books of Psalms.

    In this arrangement, the psalms often have thematic relationships with their neighboring psalms. The headings and captions that have been added to the individual psalms indicate some of these relationships.

  2. Psalm 1:2 The Hebrew torah is traditionally translated law, but the term torah also includes other types of instruction besides legal regulations, so here it is translated with the more general term teaching.
