And the Lord surrounds His people,
both now and forever. Zch 2:5
3The scepter of the wicked will not remain
over the land allotted to the righteous,
so that the righteous will not apply their hands to injustice. Ps 89:22; Is 14:5
4Do what is good, Lord, to the good,
to those whose hearts are upright. Ps 7:10; 119:68
5But as for those who turn aside to crooked ways,
the Lord will banish them with the evildoers. Ps 92:7,9; 94:4
Peace be with Israel. Ps 128:5-6
