1 A Song of the Ascents.
Those who trust in Jehovah Are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken But endures forever.
2 Just as mountains surround Jerusalem, So Jehovah surrounds his people From now on and forever.
3 The scepter of wickedness will not remain upon the land allotted to the righteous, So that the righteous do not turn to doing what is wrong.
4 Do good, O Jehovah, to those who are good, To those who are upright in heart.
5 As for those who turn aside to their crooked ways, Jehovah will remove them along with the wrongdoers. May there be peace upon Israel.
