1 [A Song of Degrees.] Those who trust in the LORD shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abides forever.
2 As the mountains are around Jerusalem, so the LORD is around his people from now on even forever.
3 For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous, lest the righteous put forth their hands to iniquity.
4 Do good, O LORD, to those who are good and to those who are upright in their hearts.
5 As for those who turn aside to their crooked ways, the LORD shall lead them forth with the workers of iniquity, but peace shall be upon Israel.
