Psalm 1 Names of God Bible (NOG)
1 Blessed is the person who does not
follow the advice of wicked people,
take the path of sinners,
or join the company of mockers.
2 Rather, he delights in the teachings of Yahweh
and reflects on his teachings day and night.
3 He is like a tree planted beside streams—
a tree that produces fruit in season
and whose leaves do not wither.
He succeeds in everything he does.[a]
4 Wicked people are not like that.
Instead, they are like husks that the wind blows away.
5 That is why wicked people will not be able to stand in the judgment
and sinners will not be able to stand where righteous people gather.
6 Yahweh knows the way of righteous people,
but the way of wicked people will end.
Note that the Righteous man is likened to a tree… This tree does things according to YAH’S/ELOHIM’S timing (not his or her own timing! The tree’s foundation is also very good.

Holy Biblical Scriptures that come to mind in relation to this month’s theme are as follows:
Yahweh Elohim made all the trees grow out of the ground. These trees were nice to look at, and their fruit was good to eat. The tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil grew in the middle of the garden.
Then he said to the man, “You listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree, although I commanded you, ‘You must never eat its fruit.’ The ground is cursed because of you. Through hard work you will eat food that comes from it every day of your life. Then Yahweh Elohim said, “The man has become like one of us, since he knows good and evil. He must not reach out and take the fruit from the treeoflife and eat. Then he would live forever.”
After he sent the man out, Elohim placed angels and a flaming sword that turned in all directions east of the Garden of Eden. He placed them there to guard the way to the tree of life.
Suppose two people go into the woods to cut wood. As one of them swings the ax to cut down a tree, the head flies of f the handle, hits, and kills the other person. The one who accidentally killed the other person may run to one of these cities and save his life.
Wisdom is a tree of life for those who take firm hold of it. Those who cling to it are blessed.
The fruit of a righteous person is a tree of life, and a winner of souls is wise.
Delayed hope makes one sick at heart, but a fulfilled longing is a tree of life.
A soothing tongue is a tree of life, but a deceitful tongue breaks the spirit.
“Let the person who has ears listen to what the Spirit says to the churches. I will give the privilege of eating from the tree of life, which stands in the paradise of God, to everyone who wins the victory.
Between the street of the city and the river there was a tree of life visible from both sides. It produced 12 kinds of fruit. Each month had its own fruit. The leaves of the tree will heal the nations.
“Blessed are those who wash their robes so that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city.
If anyone takes away any words from this book of prophecy, God will take away his portion of the tree of life and the holy city that are described in this book.
