Psalmus 1
Language: Latin 
Available translation(s): FRE
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.

Blessed is the man that walketh not in...
Language: English  after the Latin 
1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly,
  Nor standeth in the way of sinners,
  Nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord...
  And his law doth he meditate, day and night.
3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water
  That bringeth forth his fruit in his season;
  His leaf also shall not wither;
  And whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
4 The ungodly are not so; but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,
  Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6 For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous:
  But the way of the ungodly shall perish.
