Psalm 1 serves as a foundational introduction to the Book of Psalms, laying out a clear dichotomy between the righteous and the wicked. The righteous are likened to a tree planted by streams of water, flourishing and bearing fruit, while the wicked are compared to chaff that is blown away by the wind. This Psalm emphasizes the importance of delighting in the law of the Lord and meditating on it day and night. The imagery and language create a vivid portrayal of the spiritual principles that guide life's journey, offering a timeless message of wisdom and virtue.

Psalm 1

1  Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
🔑 Sermon

2  But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

🔑 Standing on the Promises

4  The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

5  Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

6  For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
