Delight in the Law of the LORD
Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 1:1-6. The Psalmist declares blessed are those who don’t seek counsel from the ungodly, or hang around with sinners, or those who are scornful.
But, their delight is in the Word of God and they meditate on it night and day. They will be like a tree planted by the riverside. They’ll produce fruit in due season. Whatever they do prospers.
This is not true for those who are ungodly. They are like the chaff that blows away in the wind. Their ways are unstable. They don’t observe the laws of the land much less the laws of God. They have no place among the righteous.
There are many laws that we observe. There are the laws of the land, and the laws of nature. But, the laws of God are the most beneficial of all laws to believers.
The LORD guides the path of the righteous, but the ways of the ungodly will lead to destruction.
Daily Bible Scripture:
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 in 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.
Things to think about:
- Who does the LORD say will be blessed?
- What does the LORD say about those who are ungodly?
- Do you delight in the law of the LORD?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father:
Thank You for this Scripture in the book of Psalms. We see in this Scripture that those who delight in Your Word are blessed. You guide the steps of the righteous, but the wicked are bound for destruction. Help us to delight in Your Word and meditate on it day and night. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

About the book:
The Book of Psalms: Part 1 Chapters 1-30 by Deborah H. Bateman is part of the Daily Bible Reading Series. The book of Psalms contains 150 chapters. Deborah divided The Book of Psalms into five books to make it easier to read and study. Each book will contain approximately thirty chapters from the book of Psalms.
Psalm 119 will not be included in The Book of Psalms since Deborah has already published a book about it called: Psalm 119: Thy Word is a Lamp unto My Feet. The book of Psalms is one of Deborah’s favorite books of the Bible. It is a great book to read if you’re ever feeling down or need to renew your relationship with Christ. King David went through a lot of tough times in his lifetime, but he loved God and trusted God to protect him from the enemies.
The book of Psalms was written by various people. About half of it was attributed to King David, whether they were written by David or for David is questioned by some biblical scholars. Some of the Psalms were written by Asaph and some say they were written for the sons of Korah and even Moses and Solomon were writers of the Psalms. The Psalms consists of poetry that was primarily meant to be used as songs of praise to the Lord.
The Book of Psalms Part 1 Chapters 1-30 contains thirty-one Daily Bible Reading Lessons. Each lesson contains a brief commentary by the author, the Daily Bible Reading Scriptures, a few questions for contemplation or discussion, and a prayer of the day. It is a great Bible study for individuals or groups.
