The Book of Psalms

    Psalm 1  

1:1 Blessed is the man who hath not walked in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stood in the way of sinners, nor sat in the chair of pestilence.

1:1 Beatus vir qui non abiit in consilio impiorum et in via peccatorum non stetit et in cathedra pestilentiae non sedit

1:2 But his will is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he shall meditate day and night.

1:2 Sed in lege Domini voluntas eius et in lege eius meditabitur die ac nocte

1:3 And he shall be like a tree which is planted near the running waters, which shall bring forth its fruit, in due season. And his leaf shall not fall off: and all whatsoever he shall do shall prosper.

1:3 Et erit tamquam lignum quod plantatum est secus decursus aquarum quod fructum suum dabit in tempore suo et folium eius non defluet et omnia quaecumque faciet prosperabuntur

1:4 Not so the wicked, not so: but like the dust, which the wind driveth from the face of the earth.

1:4 Non sic impii non sic sed tamquam pulvis quem proicit ventus a facie terrae

1:5 Therefore the wicked shall not rise again in judgment: nor sinners in the council of the just.

1:5 Ideo non resurgent impii in iudicio neque peccatores in consilio iustorum

1:6 For the Lord knoweth the way of the just: and the way of the wicked shall perish.

1:6 Quoniam novit Dominus viam iustorum et iter impiorum peribit
