1A song of ascents:
Those who trust in Adonai
are like Mount Tziyon,
which cannot be moved
but remains forever.
Mountains all around it!
Thus Adonai is around his people
henceforth and forever.
3For the scepter of wickedness
will not rule the inheritance of the righteous,
so that the righteous will not themselves
turn their hands to evil.
4Do good, Adonai, to the good,
to those upright in their hearts.
5But as for those who turn aside
to their own crooked ways,
may Adonai turn them away,
along with those who do evil.
Shalom on Isra’el!
