The Lord Surrounds His People
A Song of a Ascents.1 Those who b trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion,
which c cannot be moved, but abides forever.
2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
so d the Lord surrounds his people,
from this time forth and forevermore.
3 For e the scepter of wickedness shall not f rest
on g the land allotted to the righteous,
lest the righteous h stretch out
their hands to do wrong.
4 i Do good, O Lord, to those who are good,
and to those who are j upright in their hearts!
5 But those who k turn aside to their l crooked ways
the Lord will lead away with m evildoers!
n Peace be upon Israel!
