Blessed is the man who does not walk in the way of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of scornful, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and on that he meditates day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields it's fruit in season and whose leaves do not wither, but whatever they do they prospers. Psalms 1:1-3
