Representative Text

1 O blessed man who walks not in
the counsel of ill men,
Nor stands within the sinners way;
nor scoffers seat sits in.
2 But on Jehovah's written law
he places his delight;
And in his law he meditates,
with pleasure day and night.

3 For he is like a goodly tree
by rivers planted near;
Which timely yields its fruit, whose leaf
shall ever green appear:
And all he does shall prosper still.
4 The ungodly are not so;
But like the chaff which by the wind
is driven to and fro.

5 Therefore in judgement shall not stand
such as ungodly are;
Nor in the assembly of the just
shall sinful men appear.
6 Because the way of righteous men
The Lord approves and knows;
Whereas the way of evil men
to sure destruction goes.

The Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs of the Old and New Testament, 1758
