1 «A Song of degrees.» They that trust in the LORD [shall be] as mount Zion, [which] cannot be removed, [but] abideth for ever.
2 As the mountaines are about Ierusalem: so is the Lord about his people from henceforth and for euer.
3 For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous; lest the righteous put forth their hands unto iniquity.
4 Doe well, O Lord, vnto those that be good and true in their hearts.
5 As for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways, the LORD shall lead them forth with the workers of iniquity: [but] peace [shall be] upon Israel.
