1. A song of ascents. Like Mount Zion are they who trust in the LORD, unshakable, forever enduring.
2. As mountains surround Jerusalem, the LORD surrounds his people both now and forever.
3. The scepter of the wicked will not prevail in the land given to the just, Lest the just themselves turn their hands to evil.
4. Do good, LORD, to the good, to those who are upright of heart.
5. But those who turn aside to crooked ways may the LORD send down with the wicked. Peace upon Israel!
