Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD and whose trust is the LORD.
For he will be like a tree planted by the water,
That extends its roots by a stream and will not fear when the heat comes;
But its leaves will be green,
And it will not be anxious in a year of drought nor cease to yield fruit.
How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
Nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in His law he meditates day and night.
He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season and its leaf does not wither;
And in whatever he does, he prospers.
I call heaven and earth to witness against you today,
That I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse.
So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants,
By loving the LORD your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him;
