Full Text

1 O blessed man that walks not in
The advice of wicked men,
Nor standeth in the sinner way,
Nor scorners seats sits in.
2 But he upon Jehovah's law
Doth set his whole delight,
And in his law doth meditate
Both in the day and night.

3 He shall be like a planted tree
by water-brooks which shall
In his due season yield his fruit,
Whose leaf shall never fall.
And all he doth shall prosper well.
4 The wicked are not so:
But they are like unto the chaff
Which wind drives to and fro.

5 Therefore shall not ungodly men
In judgement stand upright,
Nor in the assembly of the just
Shall stand the sinful wight.
6 For of the righteous men the Lord
Acknowledgeth the way;
Whereas the way of wicked men
Shall utterly decay.
6 For of the righteous men the Lord
Acknowledgeth the way;
Whereas the way of wicked men
Shall utterly decay.

The Psalm, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs of the Old and New-Testament,1742
