Read Psalm 1


Read Psalm 1

1 Happy are those
   who reject the advice of evil people,
   who do not follow the example of sinners
   or join those who have no use for God.
2 Instead, they find joy in obeying the Law of the Lord,
   and they study it day and night.
3 They are like trees that grow beside a stream,
   that bear fruit at the right time,
   and whose leaves do not dry up.
They succeed in everything they do.
4 But evil people are not like this at all;
   they are like straw that the wind blows away.
5 Sinners will be condemned by God
   and kept apart from God's own people.
6 The righteous are guided and protected by the Lord,
   but the evil are on the way to their doom.

‘...they find joy in obeying the Law of the Lord, and they study it day and night.’ (Verse 2). The word for ‘law of the Lord’ is ‘Torah’ which means ‘instruction’ / teaching / wisdom.


Lord give me a passion for understanding your instruction.
