The Ways Of The Righteous And The Wicked

1 How blessed is the person, who does not take the advice of the wicked, who does not stand on the path with sinners, and who does not sit in the seat of mockers. 2 But he delights in the LORD's instruction, and meditates in his instruction day and night. 3 He will be like a tree planted by streams of water, yielding its fruit in its season, and whose leaf does not wither. He will prosper in everything he does.
