Christian Standard Bible
2 Instead, his delight is in the Lord’s instruction,
and he meditates on it day and night.(A)
3 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)
4 The wicked are not like this;
instead, they are like chaff that the wind blows away.(E)
- 1:3 Or beside irrigation channels
New International Version
2 but whose delight(A) is in the law of the Lord,(B)
and who meditates(C) on his law day and night.
3 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)
4 Not so the wicked!
They are like chaff(J)
that the wind blows away.
