The Lord Surrounds His People.
A Song of Ascents.
1Those who trust in the Lord
Are as Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but abides forever.
2As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
So the Lord surrounds His people
From this time forth and forever.
3For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest upon the land of the righteous,
So that the righteous will not put forth their hands to do wrong.
4Do good, O Lord, to those who are good
And to those who are upright in their hearts.
5But as for those who turn aside to their crooked ways,
The Lord will lead them away with the doers of iniquity.
Peace be upon Israel.
