The Lord Surrounds His People.

A Song of Ascents.

1Those who trust in the Lord
Are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but remains forever.
2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
So the Lord surrounds His people
From this time and forever.
3For the scepter of wickedness will not rest upon the Lit lotland of the righteous,
So that the righteous will not extend their hands to do wrong.
4Do good, Lord, to those who are good
And to those who are upright in their hearts.
5But as for those who turn aside to their crooked ways,
The Lord will lead them away with those who practice injustice.
Peace be upon Israel.
