and he meditates on it day and night.(A)
He is like a tree planted beside flowing streams[a]
that bears its fruit in its season(B)
and whose leaf does not wither.(C)
Whatever he does prospers.(D)

The wicked are not like this;
instead, they are like chaff that the wind blows away.(E)

That person is like a tree(D) planted by streams(E) of water,(F)
    which yields its fruit(G) in season
and whose leaf(H) does not wither—
    whatever they do prospers.(I)

    They are like chaff(J)
    that the wind blows away.
