Psalms 1:1-4, 6
17 thus says the lord, your redeemer, the holy one of israel: “i am the lord your god, who teaches you to profit, who leads you in the way you should go. 18 o that you had hearkened to my commandments! Then your peace would have been like a river, and your righteousness like the waves of the sea; 19 your offspring would have been like the sand, and your descendants like its grains; their name would never be cut off or destroyed from before me.”
Psalms 1:1-4, 6
1 blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits 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 which the wind drives away. 6 for the lord knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.
16 “but to what shall i compare this generation? It is like children sitting in the market places and calling to their playmates, 17`we piped to you, and you did not dance; we wailed, and you did not mourn.’ 18 for john came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, `he has a demon’; 19 the son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, `behold, a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ Yet wisdom is justified by her deeds.”
