True Happiness in God's Law

I

1Happy those* who do not follow the counsel of the wicked, Nor go the way* of sinners, nor sit in company with scoffers. a Pss 26, 4–5; 40, 5 . 2Rather, the law of the LORD * is their joy; God's law they study day and night. b Jos 1, 8; Ps 119; Sir 39, 1 . 3They are like a tree c Pss 52, 10; 92, 13–15; Jer 17, 8 . planted near streams of water, that yields its fruit in season; Its leaves never wither; whatever they do prospers.

II

4But not the wicked!* They are like chaff driven by the wind. d Pss 35, 5; 83, 14–16; Jb 21, 18 . 5Therefore the wicked will not survive judgment, nor will sinners in the assembly of the just. 6The LORD watches over the way of the just, e Ps 37, 18 . but the way of the wicked leads to ruin.
