1 <<A Song of degrees.>> Those that trust in the LORD [are] as mount Zion, [which] cannot be removed [but] abides for ever.
2 As the mountains [are] round about Jerusalem, so the LORD [is] round about his people from now on even for ever.
3 For the rod of wickedness shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous because the righteous shall not put forth their hands unto iniquity.
4 Do good, O LORD, unto [those that are] good and [to those that are] upright in their hearts.
5 As for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways, the LORD shall take them away with the workers of iniquity; [and] peace [shall be] upon Israel.:
