Psalm words

1    That man hath perfect blessedness,
       who walketh not astray
     In counsel of ungodly men,
       nor stands in sinners' way,
     Nor sitteth in the scorner's chair:
2      But placeth his delight
     Upon God's law, and meditates
       on his law day and night.

3    He shall be like a tree that grows
       near planted by a river,
     Which in his season yields his fruit,
       and his leaf fadeth never:
     And all he doth shall prosper well.
4      The wicked are not so;
     But like they are unto the chaff,
       which wind drives to and fro.

5    In judgment therefore shall not stand
       such as ungodly are;
     Nor in th' assembly of the just
       shall wicked men appear.
6    For why? the way of godly men
       unto the Lord is known:
     Whereas the way of wicked men
       shall quite be overthrown.
