The Lord Surrounds His People
A Song of #[See Ps. 120, title]Ascents.
1Those who #Ps. 25:2, 3 trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion,
which #Ps. 93:1; 104:5; [Prov. 10:30]cannot be moved, but abides forever.
2As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
so #[2 Kgs. 6:17; Zech. 2:5]the Lord surrounds his people,
from this time forth and forevermore.
3For #Isa. 14:5 the scepter of wickedness shall not #Isa. 30:30 rest
on #See Ps. 16:5 the land allotted to the righteous,
lest the righteous #Gen. 3:22; Ex. 22:8stretch out
their hands to do wrong.
Ps. 119:68 Do good, O Lord, to those who are good,
and to those who are #See Ps. 7:10upright in their hearts!
5But those who #See Ps. 40:4 turn aside to their #Prov. 2:15 crooked ways
the Lord will lead away with #Ps. 92:7, 9; 94:4 evildoers!
Ps. 128:6; Gal. 6:16 Peace be upon Israel!
