Blessed is the man that walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stand in the way of sinners, nor sit in the seat of the scornful.
But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and his law doth he meditate day and night.
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.
The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgement, nor sinners in the congregation of righteous.
For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
I will extol there, O Lord; for thou has lifted me up, and has not made my foes to rejoice over me.
O Lord, thou has brought up my soul from the grave: thou has kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
Sing unto the Lord, O ye saints of his, give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
For his anger endure but a moment; in his favor is life: weeping may endure for a night, but Joy comes in the morning.
And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.
Lord, by the favour thou has made my mountain to stand strong: thou did hide thy face, and I was troubled.
I cried to thee, O Lord; and unto the Lord I made supplication.
What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? Shall it declare thy truth?
Hear, O Lord, and have mercy upon me: Lord, be thou my helper.
Thou has turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou has put off my sackcloth, and guide me with gladness.
To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not to be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks unto there forever.
