World English Bible
So the Lord Surrounds His People
1Those who trust in Yahweh are as Mount Zion, which can't be moved, but remains forever.
2As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so Yahweh surrounds his people from this time forth and forevermore.
3For 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.
4Do good, Yahweh, to those who are good, to those who are upright in their hearts.
5But as for those who turn aside to their crooked ways, Yahweh will lead them away with the workers of iniquity. Peace be on Israel. A Song of Ascents.
