For the Lord knoweth the way of the just: and the way of the wicked shall perish.

 

 

 

n.b.

Many of the Psalms were written by King David about a thousand years before the birth of Jesus Christ. Psalm 1, however, may have been written by King Solomon and is taken from The Douay Rheims Catholic Bible
