1 Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion,
which cannot be moved, but stands fast for ever.
2 As the hills stand about Jerusalem,
so the Lord stands round about his people,
from this time forth for evermore.
3 The sceptre of wickedness shall not hold sway
over the land allotted to the righteous,
lest the righteous turn their hands to evil.
4 Do good, O Lord, to those who are good,
and to those who are true of heart.
5 Those who turn aside to crooked ways
the Lord shall take away with the evildoers;
but let there be peace upon Israel.
