Blessed is the one who obeys the law of the Lord. He doesn’t follow the advice of evil people. He doesn’t make a habit of doing what sinners do. He doesn’t join those who make fun of the Lord and his law.
2 Instead, he takes delight in the law of the Lord. He thinks about his law day and night.
3 He is like a tree that is planted near a stream of water. It always bears its fruit at the right time. Its leaves don’t dry up. Everything godly people do turns out well.
4 Sinful people are not like that at all. They are like straw that the wind blows away.
5 When the Lord judges them, their life will come to an end. Sinners won’t have any place among those who are godly.
6 The Lord watches over the lives of those who are godly. But the lives of sinful people will lead to their death.
