A Song of Ascents.
1They that trust in Jehovah
Are as mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abideth for ever.
2As the mountains are round about Jerusalem,
So Jehovah is round about his people
From this time forth and for evermore.
3For the sceptre of wickedness shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous;
That the righteous put not forth their hands unto iniquity.
4Do good, O Jehovah, unto those that are good,
And to them that are upright in their hearts.
5But as for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways,
Jehovah will lead them forth with the workers of iniquity.
Peace be upon Israel.
