A song for those who go up to Jerusalem to worship the Lord.
1Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion.
They will always be secure. They will last forever.
2Like the mountains around Jerusalem,
the Lord is all around his people
both now and forever.
3Evil people will not always rule
the land the Lord gave to those who do right.
If they did, those who do right
might do what is evil.
4Lord, do good to those who are good.
Do good to those whose hearts are honest.
5But what about those who have taken paths that are crooked?
The Lord will drive them out, along with those who do what is evil. May Israel enjoy peace.
