Psalm 1: Two Ways of Living
As the first Psalm to the Psalter, Psalm 1 serves as an appropriate introduction, as it describes the two ways that are open to humanity. Just as God through Moses set before Israel the way of life and death, so the Psalmist sets before his readers the way of the righteous and the way of the wicked (cf. Deut. 30:19; Genesis 2:15-17).
