1 Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion,(A) which cannot be shaken(B) but endures forever. 2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem,(C) so the Lord surrounds(D) his people both now and forevermore.
3 The scepter(E) of the wicked will not remain(F) over the land allotted to the righteous, for then the righteous might use their hands to do evil.(G)
4 Lord, do good(H) to those who are good, to those who are upright in heart.(I) 5 But those who turn(J) to crooked ways(K) the Lord will banish(L) with the evildoers.
