A song for going up to worship.
1 Those who trust the Lord are like Mount Zion,
which can never be shaken.
It remains firm forever.
2 ⌊As⌋ the mountains surround Jerusalem,
so the Lord surrounds his people now and forever.
3 A wicked ruler will not be allowed to govern
the land set aside for righteous people.
That is why righteous people do not use their power to do wrong.
4 Do good, O Lord, to those who are good,
to those whose motives are decent.
5 But when people become crooked,
the Lord will lead them away with troublemakers.
Let there be peace in Israel!
