A SONG OF ASCENTS.
1 Those who trust in Yahweh are like Mount Zion,
which cannot be moved, but abides forever.
2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
so Yahweh surrounds his people,
from this time forth and forevermore.
3 For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest
on the land allotted to the righteous,
lest the righteous stretch out
their hands to do wrong.
4 Do good, O Yahweh, to those who are good,
and to those who are upright in their hearts!
5 But those who turn aside to their crooked ways
Yahweh will lead away with evildoers!
Peace be upon Israel!
