Psalm 1

Psalms 1 (ESV)

The Righteous

The evil doers

1 Blessed is the man[a] who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; 2  but his delight is in the law[b] of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. 3  He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers. 4  The wicked are not so, but are like chaff that the wind drives away.  5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous; 6  for the Lord knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.
Comment 1: The righteous man could also refer to =  Jesus The Evil doers = those who were going to persecute and execute Jesus.

THE RIGHTEOUS BLESSED MAN

Negation- Negative Description Affirmative Description
walks not in the counsel of the wicked, but his delight is in the law[b] of the Lord,
This could mean to walk or be with someone in general, but more likely it means to walk with someone who you hold in high esteem and is bound to influence you. Delighted in the law may mean to feel happy in fulfilling the law. There is no inner struggle. It almost comes natural to him.
nor stands in the way of sinners, and on his law he meditates day and night.
Either to stand like sinners or to stand on the same path of life as sinners. The other meaning of delighting in the law, is to feel happy when reading the scripture. The more you read the Word, the more you are bound to reflect on it and apply it in your daily life and vice versa.
nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
This means to take the position or act like a scoffer; someone who mocks and treats others with contempt. Even when the one who is mocked is not righteous, mocking is not a way to build people up but to put them down. It is also filled with pride and venomous desire to hurt.
