Beatus vir, qui non abiit.

Blessed is the man that hath not walked in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stood in the | way of sinners,

* and hath not sat in the | seat of the scornful.

2 But his delight is in the law | of the LORD;

* and in his law will he exercise him- | -self day and night.

3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the | water-side,

* that will bring forth his | fruit in due season.

4 His leaf also | shall not wither;

* and look, whatsoever he | doeth, it shall prosper.

5 As for the ungodly, it is not | so with them;

* but they are like the chaff, which the wind scattereth away from the | face of the earth.

6 Therefore the ungodly shall not be able to stand | in the judgment,

* neither the sinners in the congre- | -gation of the righteous.

7 But the LORD knoweth the way | of the righteous;

* and the way of the un- | -godly shall perish.

Glory be to the Father, and | to the Son,

* and | to the Holy Ghost,

As it was in the beginning, is now, and | ever shall be,

* world without | end.  Amen.
