Psalm 1 (WEBP)

[1] Blessed is the man who doesn’t walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand on the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers;
[2] but his delight is in Yahweh’s° law. On his law he meditates day and night.
[3] He will be like a tree planted by the streams of water, that produces its fruit in its season, whose leaf also does not wither. Whatever he does shall prosper.
[4] The wicked are not so, but are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
[5] Therefore the wicked shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
[6] For Yahweh knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked shall perish.

Psalm 1:2 “Yahweh” is God’s proper Name, sometimes rendered “LORD” (all caps) in other translations.

Psalm 1 (KJVS)

[1] Blessed H835 [is] the man H376 that walketh H1980 (8804) not in the counsel H6098 of the ungodly H7563, nor standeth H5975 (8804) in the way H1870 of sinners H2400, nor sitteth H3427 (8804) in the seat H4186 of the scornful H3887 (8801).
[2] But his delight H2656 [is] in the law H8451 of the LORD H3068; and in his law H8451 doth he meditate H1897 (8799) day H3119 and night H3915.
[3] And he shall be like a tree H6086 planted H8362 (8803) by the rivers H6388 of water H4325, that bringeth forth H5414 (8799) his fruit H6529 in his season H6256; his leaf H5929 also shall not wither H5034 (8799); and whatsoever he doeth H6213 (8799) shall prosper H6743 (8686).
[4] The ungodly H7563 [are] not so: but [are] like the chaff H4671 which the wind H7307 driveth away H5086 (8799).
[5] Therefore the ungodly H7563 shall not stand H6965 (8799) in the judgment H4941, nor sinners H2400 in the congregation H5712 of the righteous H6662.
[6] For the LORD H3068 knoweth H3045 (8802) the way H1870 of the righteous H6662: but the way H1870 of the ungodly H7563 shall perish H6 (8799).

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 1 (YLT)

[1] O the happiness of that one, who Hath not walked in the counsel of the wicked. And in the way of sinners hath not stood, And in the seat of scorners hath not sat;
[2] But-in the law of Jehovah is his delight, And in His law he doth meditate by day and by night:
[3] And he hath been as a tree, Planted by rivulets of water, That giveth its fruit in its season, And its leaf doth not wither, And all that he doth he causeth to prosper.
[4] Not so the wicked: But-as chaff that wind driveth away!
[5] Therefore the wicked rise not in judgment, Nor sinners in the company of the righteous,
[6] For Jehovah is knowing the way of the righteous, And the way of the wicked is lost!
