1 A Canticle in steps. Those who trust in the Lord will be like the mountain of Zion. He will not be disturbed for eternity, who dwells
2 in Jerusalem. Mountains surround it. And the Lord surrounds his people, from this time forward and even forever.
3 For the Lord will not allow the rod of sinners to remain over the lot of the just, so that the just may not extend their hands toward iniquity.
4 Do good, O Lord, to the good and to the upright of heart.
5 But those who turn away into obligation, the Lord will lead away with the workers of iniquity. Peace be upon Israel.
