Pray With Us

PSALM 1

Happy indeed are those
who follow not the counsel of the wicked
nor linger in the way of sinners
nor sit in the company of the arrogant,
but instead delight in God's law
both day and night.

They are like trees
planted beside flowing waters.
They yield fruit in due season;
their leaves are ever green.
All that they do prospers.

Not so the wicked,
for they are like winnowed chaff,
driven away by the wind.
When the wicked are judged,
they will not have a place among the just.

God protects the way of the just,
but the way of the wicked leads to ruin.
