Psalm 1
It's not that Psalm 1 presents, as one commentator described "an ideal righteous person." It's common to fall back on that when we notice that there are two categorizations in this Psalm, and only two. That kind of solution to the dichotomy this Psalm makes about everyone makes just about anyone who is honest with themselves ask, "what about those, including me, who are, at various times, righteous, and at various times wicked?" This confuses a category with its visible manifestation.

Not to be dismissed easily, however: of what righteous person, was it always true that "in all the he does, he prospers?" The same commentator says that this means that the person is always "useful and productive to the Lord." Really? Is there a obvious guarantee that anyone is always useful and productive to the Lord?
