Blessed are those that don’t follow
In the ways of the impious,
Stand in the way sinners do
Or sit in the seat of contemptuous.
Delight is in Your Law, Lord;
Joy should be found in Thee!
I Meditate day and night on Thy Word
And I shall never ever cease!
Those that follow Thee are like a tree,
Planted by the river of flowing water.
It bears fruit in its season; its leaves
Will never wither, and it shall prosper!
Wheat’s chaff is the wicked and their way –
They will be blown elsewhere by the wind
They shan’t outlive the judgment day –
Their unholy traditions shall perish then.
This is based heavily on the first Psalm. 🙂 (Shout out to TR who just posted a summary a couple of weeks ago for this psalm!) A long time ago, I thought about writing a poem based on each psalm, but I never did. I did get to Psalm 88 (Draw Nigh!) and Psalm 96 (The Lord Of Hosts Reigns Always!) but never got much farther. Or so I thought. Turns out, I wrote this one and forgot about it. And never posted it. So here it is. 🙂 Perhaps someday I will reach that goal.
