A Song of Ascents.
1Those who trust in the Lord are as Mount Zion,
which can’t be moved, but remains forever.
2As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
so the Lord surrounds his people from this time forward and forever more.
3For the sceptre of wickedness won’t remain over the allotment of the righteous,
so that the righteous won’t use their hands to do evil.
4Do good, Lord, to those who are good,
to those who are upright in their hearts.
5But as for those who turn away to their crooked ways,
The Lord will lead them away with the workers of iniquity.
Peace be on Israel.
