Psalms 1:1-6 ESV

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers;

But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night.

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.

The wicked are not so, but are like chaff that the wind drives away.

Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;

For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.

An Exposition of Psalm 1, Part One - Truth For Life
The writer of Psalm 1 is clear: the righteous will prosper and the wicked will perish. Since only Jesus has been truly righteous, what does that mean for everyone else? Alistair Begg helps us understand this righteousness is a blessing found in Christ, not an achievement earned on our own. When the truth of this grace captivates our minds, our lives will be conformed to Gods will.
An Exposition of Psalm 1, Part Two - Truth For Life
Psalm 1 tells us that the righteous will prosper, and the wicked will perish, so why do wicked people often appear to be prospering? Alistair Begg explains that while evil doers succeed in this life, they are unprepared to face their death. God has fixed a day of judgment for the unrighteousness of man, and only through faith in the righteousness of Christ will we receive Gods mercy on that day.
