Psalm 1

The Way of the Righteous and the Wicked

1 Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, norsits in the seat of scoffers; 
2 but his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. 
3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers. 
4 The wicked are not so, but are like chaff that the wind drives away. 
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous; 
6 for the LORD knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.

Proverbs 3:1-12

Trust in the Lord with All Your Heart

1 My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments, 
2 for length of days and years of life and peace they will add to you. 
3 Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you;bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. 
4 So you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man. 
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. 
6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. 
7 Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD, and turn away from evil. 
8 It will be healing to your flesh andrefreshment to your bones. 
9 Honor the LORD with your wealth and with the firstfruits of all your produce;
10 then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine. 
11 My son, do not despise the LORD’s discipline or be weary of his reproof, 
12 for the LORD reproves him whom he loves, as a father the son in whom he delights.
