Happy New Year-2015

The new year started with a bang for me (both in a good and a bad way); I hosted some friends for drinks in my apartment and since I was expecting a special guest the following day, I chose not to partake in the merry making. Unfortunate for my buddies they blacked out an hour before we bid farewell to 2014 and they never got to welcome they new baby 2015. All the same, it was a night of fun. On the first day of the new year, I got to enjoy it in the company of a very beautiful damsel and the hangout was a memorable moment.

As we all are still nursing the new year hangover, I wanna go a little bit spiritual today, quoting the Great Book:-

Psalms 1

 Happy are those
    who reject the advice of evil people,
    who do not follow the example of sinners
    or join those who have no use for God.
 Instead, they find joy in obeying the Law of the Lord,
    and they study it day and night.
 They are like trees that grow beside a stream,
    that bear fruit at the right time,
    and whose leaves do not dry up.
They succeed in everything they do.

But evil people are not like this at all;
    they are like straw that the wind blows away.
Sinners will be condemned by God
    and kept apart from God’s own people.
The righteous are guided and protected by the Lord,
    but the evil are on the way to their doom

Salmo 1

 Dichoso el hombre
    que no sigue el consejo de los malvados,
ni se detiene en la senda de los pecadores
    ni cultiva la amistad de los blasfemos,
 sino que en la ley del Señor se deleita,
    y día y noche medita en ella.
 Es como el árbol
    plantado a la orilla de un río
que, cuando llega su tiempo, da fruto
    y sus hojas jamás se marchitan.
    ¡Todo cuanto hace prospera!

 En cambio, los malvados
    son como paja arrastrada por el viento.
 Por eso no se sostendrán los malvados en el juicio,
    ni los pecadores en la asamblea de los justos.

 Porque el Señor cuida el camino de los justos,
    mas la senda de los malos lleva a la perdición.

Psaumes 1

Heureux l’homme qui ne marche pas selon les conseils des *méchants,
qui ne va pas se tenir sur le chemin des pécheurs,
qui ne s’assied pas en compagnie des moqueurs.

 Toute sa joie il la met dans la Loi de l’Eternel
qu’il médite jour et nuit.

 Il prospère comme un arbre planté près d’un courant d’eau;
il donne toujours son fruit lorsqu’en revient la saison.
Son feuillage est toujours vert;
tout ce qu’il fait réussit.

 Tel n’est pas le cas des méchants:
ils sont pareils à la paille éparpillée par le vent.

 Aussi, lors du jugement, ils ne subsisteront pas,
et nul pécheur ne tiendra au rassemblement des justes.

 Car l’Eternel veille sur la voie des justes;
mais le sentier des méchants les mène à la ruine.

 

In 2014 we may have experienced calamities in terms of terrorist attacks, accidents (road, air, rail etc), taken the route of evil that led us into problems. The verse serves as a warning, not to follow the ways of the sinners but to follow the way of the righteous for we’ll be protected by the Lord.

Happy new year everyone.
