1. Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, immovable, it stands forever.
2. As mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord encompasses his people.
3. The scepter of the wicked will not remain over the land allotted to the upright, for then the upright might be led to put their hands to evil deeds.
4. Be good, O Lord, to those who are good, to those who are upright in heart.
5. But those who turn to crooked ways, the Lord will drive out with the evildoers. May peace remain upon Israel.
