Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor

standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he

meditate day and night.

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that

bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not w

and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth


Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in

the congregation of the righteous.

For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly

shall perish.


The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his


Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night showeth knowledge.

There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the

end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun.

Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth

as a strong man to run a race.

His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit

unto the ends of it; and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.

The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony

of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.

The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the

commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.

The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments

of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.

More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold:

sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them

there is great reward.

Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.

Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not

have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be

innocent from the great transgression.

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be

acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.
