|1||Μακάριος ἀνήρ, ὃς οὐκ ἐπορεύθη ἐν βουλῇ ἀσεβῶν,
καὶ ἐν ὁδῷ ἁμαρτωλῶν οὐκ ἔστη,
καὶ ἐπὶ καθέδραν λοιμῶν οὐκ ἐκάθισεν,
|Blessed is the man who has not walked in the counsel of the ungodly |
and has not stood in the way of sinners
and has not sat in the seat of evil men.
|PSALMS. BOOK 1. Psalm 1|
|2||ἀλλ' ἢ ἐν τῷ νόμῳ κυρίου τὸ θέλημα αὐτοῦ,
καὶ ἐν τῷ νόμῳ αὐτοῦ μελετήσει ἡμέρας καὶ νυκτός.
|But his pleasure is in the law of the Lord; |
and in his law will he meditate day and night.
|3||καὶ ἔσται ὡς τὸ ξύλον τὸ πεφυτευμένον παρὰ τὰς διεξόδους τῶν ὑδάτων,
ὃ τὸν καρπὸν αὐτοῦ δώσει ἐν καιρῷ αὐτοῦ,
καὶ τὸ φύλλον αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἀπορρυήσεται·
καὶ πάντα, ὅσα ἂν ποιῇ, κατευοδωθήσεται.
|And he shall be as a tree planted by the brooks of waters |
which shall yield its fruit in its season
and its leaf shall not fall off;
and whatsoever he shall do shall be prospered.
|4||οὐχ οὕτως οἱ ἀσεβεῖς, οὐχ οὕτως,
ἀλλ' ἢ ὡς ὁ χνοῦς, ὃν ἐκριπτεῖ ὁ ἄνεμος ἀπὸ προσώπου τῆς γῆς.
|Not so the ungodly;-- not so: |
but rather as the chaff which the wind scatters away from the face of the earth.
|5||διὰ τοῦτο οὐκ ἀναστήσονται ἀσεβεῖς ἐν κρίσει,
οὐδὲ ἁμαρτωλοὶ ἐν βουλῇ δικαίων·
|Therefore the ungodly shall not rise in judgment |
nor sinners in the counsel of the just.
|6||ὅτι γινώσκει κύριος ὁδὸν δικαίων,
καὶ ὁδὸς ἀσεβῶν ἀπολεῖται.
|For the Lord knows the way of the righteous; |
but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
|| | Psalms: 1 | >>
