Those who trust in the LORD
Are like Mount Zion,
Which cannot be moved, but abides forever. 2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
So the LORD surrounds His people
From this time forth and forever. 3 For a the scepter of wickedness shall not rest
On the land allotted to the righteous,
Lest the righteous reach out their hands to iniquity. 4 Do good, O LORD, to those who are good,
And to those who are upright in their hearts. 5 As for such as turn aside to their b crooked ways,
The LORD shall lead them away
With the workers of iniquity.
c Peace be upon Israel!
