6 Blessed is the man who…Walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,Nor stands in the path of sinners,Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
7 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night.
8 3 He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper.
9 4 The ungodly are not so, But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
10 5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
11 6 For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the ungodly shall perish.
12 Gen 2:21-2421 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. 22 Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man.
13 Gen 2:23-2423 And Adam said: "This is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man."24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.
