psalm 1, as i remember it

blessed is she who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked
nor stand in the way of sinners
nor sit in the seat of scoffers
but her delight is on the law of the lord
and on that law she meditates day and night.

she shall be like a tree planted by streams of water
which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither
whatever she does prospers.

not so are the wicked
they are like the chaff that the wind blows away
therefore the wicked shall not stand in the judgment
nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

for the lord watches over the way of the righteous
but the way of the wicked shall perish.
