1 A Song of Ascents.
2 Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides for ever.
3 As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the LORD is round about his people, from this time forth and for evermore.
4 For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest upon the land allotted to the righteous, lest the righteous put forth their hands to do wrong.
5 Do good, O LORD, to those who are good, and to those who are upright in their hearts! [ (Psalms 125:6) But those who turn aside upon their crooked ways the LORD will lead away with evildoers! Peace be in Israel! ]
