1 A Song of Ascents.Those who trust in the Lord are as Mount Zion,which can't be moved, but remains forever.

2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem,so the Lord surrounds his people from this time forth and forevermore.

3 For the scepter of wickedness won't remain over the allotment of the righteous;so that the righteous won't use their hands to do evil.

4 Do good, Lord, to those who are good,to those who are upright in their hearts.

5 But as for those who turn aside to their crooked ways,The Lord will lead them away with the workers of iniquity.Peace be on Israel.
