Psalmus 1

Language: Latin

1 Beatus vir qui non abiit in consilio impiorum,
  et in via peccatorum non stetit,
  et in cathedra pestilentiæ non sedit;
2 sed in lege Domini voluntas ejus,
  et in lege ejus meditabitur die ac nocte.
3 Et erit tamquam lignum quod plantatum est secus decursus aquarum,
  quod fructum suum dabit in tempore suo: et folium ejus non defluet;
  et omnia quæcumque faciet prosperabuntur.
4 Non sic impii, non sic;
  sed tamquam pulvis quem projicit ventus a facie terræ.
5 Ideo non resurgent impii in judicio,
  neque peccatores in concilio justorum:
6 quoniam novit Dominus viam justorum,
  et iter impiorum peribit.

Wohl dem, der nicht wandelt im Rat der...

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Latin

1 Wohl dem, der nicht wandelt im Rat der Gottlosen,
  noch tritt auf den Weg der Sünder,
  noch [sitzt]1, da die Spötter sitzen,
2 sondern hat Lust zum Gesetz des Herrn
  und redet von seinem [Gesetz]2 Tag und Nacht.
3 Der ist wie ein Baum, gepflanzet an den Wasserbächen,
  der seine Frucht bringet zu seiner Zeit,
  und seine Blätter verwelken nicht, und was er macht, das gerät wohl.
4 Aber so sind die Gottlosen nicht, sondern wie Spreu,
  die der Wind verstreuet.
5 Darum bleiben die Gottlosen nicht im Gerichte,
  noch die Sünder in der Gemeine der Gerechten.
6 Denn der Herr kennet den Weg der Gerechten,
  aber der Gottlosen Weg vergehet.
