When I was reading Psalm 1 some days ago, I realized that the HCSB translation had a quite different rendering of verse 6 than NKJV/NASB that I remembered from previous reading. Psalm 1:6 in HCSB states: For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked leads to ruin. Other translations that also uses “watches over”, is NLT-SE, TNIV, NIV and NRSV. The CEV translation uses “protects”.
