1 Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.
4 Not so the wicked!
They are like chaff
that the wind blows away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
6 For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.
Will you delight in God’s Word with me?
Will you meditate on it by reading, thinking, mulling over, chewing on it (like a cow chews the cud)?
Will you let yourself be planted by streams of water, living water, that wells up to eternal life (John 4:14)?
Will you let it anchor you in the storms of life, so that you will not be blown away like chaff? Will you make sure you abide in him (John 15:4)?
Will you rest, knowing that God watches over the way of the righteous, knowing that God made Jesus who knew no sin to become sin for us so that in him we might become the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21)?
Will you read though the Psalms with me?
