For you, the Eternal’s Word is your happiness.
    It is your focus—from dusk to dawn.
You are like a tree,
    planted by flowing, cool streams of water that never run dry.
Your fruit ripens in its time;
    your leaves never fade or curl in the summer sun.
No matter what you do, you prosper.

For those who focus on sin, the story is different.
    They are like the fallen husk of wheat, tossed by an open wind, left deserted and alone.

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)

Not so the wicked!
    They are like chaff(J)
    that the wind blows away.
