Psalms 1 (New Living Translation)
"Oh, the joys of those
who do not follow the advice of the wicked,
or stand around with sinners,
or join in with scoffers.
But they delight in doing everything the LORD wants;
day and night they think about his law.
They are like trees planted along the riverbank,
bearing fruit each season without fail.
Their leaves never wither,
and in all they do, they prosper.
But this is not true of the wicked.
They are like worthless chaff, scattered by the wind.
They will be condemned at the time of judgement.
Sinners will have no place among the godly.
For the LORD watched over the path of the godly,
but the path of the wicked leads to destruction."
(This is Michael's favorite Bible verse)
