WHERE IS JOY FOUND

PSALM 1

1

Oh, the joys of those who do not
follow the advice of the wicked,
or stand around with sinners,
or join in with mockers.

2

But they delight in the law of the Lord,
meditating on it day and night.

3

 They are like trees planted along the riverbank,
bearing fruit each season.
Their leaves never wither,
and they prosper in all they do.

4

But not the wicked!
They are like worthless chaff, scattered by the wind.

5

They will be condemned at the time of judgment.
Sinners will have no place among the godly.

6

For the Lord watches over the path of the godly,
but the path of the wicked leads to destruction.
