1 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. (Ps.1-41.) Blessed is the the Man. Psalm 1
2 But his pleasure is in the law of the Lord;
and in his law will he meditate day and night.

3 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 Not so the ungodly; - not so:
but rather as the chaff which the wind scatters away from the face of the earth.

5 Therefore the ungodly shall not rise in judgment,
nor sinners in the counsel of the just.

6 For the Lord knows the way of the righteous;
but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Notes: This webpage enables you to select-a-version from the Bible versions held on the katapi bible database.
This Version of Brenton's Translation of the Septuagint into English contains only the Books of the Hebrew Canon (Gen-Mal). I have tried to change the old English sections into modern speech. (But some sentences may not flow easily and still seem stilted!)
You can view the whole translation including the Apocrypha and lots more at E C Marsh's Website HERE.
The katapi New Study Bible reference section displays links to parallel passages, and to direct quotations by New Testament authors to Old Testament passages. Quotations of OT passages by NT authors can in most cases be viewed within their context of the OT passage as a whole, with the quoted text displayed, against a subdued background. Any mismatches, truncated verses, other mistakes ?
