1 My life is filled with joy when I refuse to follow the advice of the wicked, or hangout with sinners, or join in with cynical and unbelieving people.
2 But choose instead to fill my mind with God’s Word, thinking about it day and night.
3 Because I do this, God says my life will be like a tree planted along the riverbank, which continually bears fruit each and every season. My leaves will never wither, and I will prosper in all that I do.
4 But not so for the wicked! They are like worthless chaff, scattered by the wind.
5 They will be condemned at the time of judgment. They will have no place among the godly.
6 For the Lord watches over me wherever I go, but the path of the wicked leads to destruction.
