Old Testament in a year – Day 162

Psalms 1: 1 - 2: 11

1Blessed is the man who doesn’t walk in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stand on the path of sinners,
nor sit in the seat of scoffers;
2but his delight is in the LORD’s law.
On his law he meditates day and night.
3He will be like a tree planted by the streams of water,
that produces its fruit in its season,
whose leaf also does not wither.
Whatever he does shall prosper.
4The wicked are not so,
but are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
5Therefore the wicked shall not stand in the judgement,
nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6For the LORD knows the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked shall perish.
1Why do the nations rage,
and the peoples plot a vain thing?
2The kings of the earth take a stand,
and the rulers take counsel together,
against the LORD, and against his Anointed, saying,
3“Let’s break their bonds apart,
and cast their cords from us.”
4He who sits in the heavens will laugh.
The Lord will have them in derision.
5Then he will speak to them in his anger,
and terrify them in his wrath:
6“Yet I have set my King on my holy hill of Zion.”
7I will tell of the decree:
The LORD said to me, “You are my son.
Today I have become your father.
8Ask of me, and I will give the nations for your inheritance,
the uttermost parts of the earth for your possession.
9You shall break them with a rod of iron.
You shall dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.”
10Now therefore be wise, you kings.
Be instructed, you judges of the earth.
11Serve the LORD with fear,
and rejoice with trembling.
