- World English Bible
O the happiness of that one, who Hath not walked in the counsel of the wicked. And in the way of sinners hath not stood, And in the seat of scorners hath not sat;
- Youngs Literal Bible
HAPPY IS the man that hath not walked in the counsel of the wicked, nor stood in the way of sinners, nor sat in the seat of the scornful.
- Jewish Publication Society Bible
1:1 Blessed - The Hebrew words are very emphatical: O the blessedness of that man! Counsel - That doth not lead his life according to their counsel, or manner of living. Standeth - Which notes a more settled abode in it. Way - In their manner of conversation. Seat - Which notes a constant and resolved perseverance in their wicked courses. Scornful - Of those who make a mock of sin, and scoff at goodness and goodmen. Divers observe a gradation in this verse; the following clause still exceeding the former, for standing is more than walking, and sitting more than standing; and sinners in scripture use, are worse than the ungodly, and the scornful are the worst of sinners.

It tells me to not get advice counsel from the ungodly. So I try to find Christians professionals, such as Doctors, Lawyers, Financial Planners, Real Estate agents, etc. These people can hear from God and can give you the best advice for your particular need. Not what is best for the world at large, or what the enemy would like for you to hear or do.

Association with those who do not love Jehovah God should be avoided.

our God is good always

If we want to be blessed, bottom line, we can not be around ungodly people. It may mean walking away from friends, family, and even a spouse or significant other if we want to receive the blessings God has in store for them who love Him.
Dharam's comment on 2014-05-21 07:16:00:
The man who will be blessed is the man who follow God 's Word and not the worldly standards. Brethren we must live a life that is pleasing to God in order to receive the blessings that he has for us

A truly blessed beginning, and/or rather, firm way to please our creator in pursuit of walking, and living upright with The Lord God, Yashua, in the Holy Spirit; is to attain to applying Psalm 1 verse 1 to his/her life in and with Christ.

I BELIEVE THAT PSALMS 1:1 IS AND SHOULD ALWAYS BE THE BASIC GUIDLINE TO SUCESSFUL CHRISTIANITY.

Eunice's comment on 2012-07-26 08:14:48:
I believe we have the right to everything but not all suits us as christians.
Stephen Young's comment on 2012-01-14 15:18:12:
I was reminded by my son that when I left the Lord and walked on my own, he buried himself in Psalms. He is proof that Gods word will take you through anything and the wise man seeks Godly counsel
