1 Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides for ever. 2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people, from this time on and for evermore. 3 For the sceptre of wickedness shall not rest on the land allotted to the righteous,
so that the righteous may not stretch out their hands to do wrong. 4 Do good, O Lord, to those who are good, and to those who are upright in their hearts. 5 But those who turn aside to their own crooked ways the Lord will lead away with evildoers.
Peace be upon Israel!
