1 Blest is the man who has not walked beneath the sinnersí groves
And not stood on the path of vice, nor sat where scoffers sit;
2 Who in JEHOVAHís Laws delights,
And seeks His rules by day and night.
3 Like trees beside the flowing stream,
Which bear their fruit in season due,
Their leaves fade not, and they succeed,
In all they undertake to do.
4 Not so the bad, they are like chaff,
Which winds, will drive away;ó
5 The bad will not attain to rule nor sinners hold the good.
6 For good menís path the LORD prepares,
but breaks the bad menís road.
