Psalm 1, inclusion

1 A blessed person does not walk in the counsel of the ungodly,
nor stand in the sinners' track,
nor sit in the seat of the scornful.
2 But Adonai's law is his delight;
and he meditates in his law day and night.
3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water,
that brings forth fruit in its season;
  also his leaf shall not wither;
    and whatever he does shall prosper.
4 The ungodly are not like this:
but like chaff which the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6 For Adonai knows the track of the righteous:
but the track of the ungodly shall perish.
