New Heart English Bible
1[A Song of Ascents.] Those who trust in the LORD are as Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but remains forever.
2As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds his people from this time forth and forevermore.
3For the scepter of wickedness won't remain over the allotment of the righteous; so that the righteous won't use their hands to do evil.
4Do good, LORD, to those who are good, 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 evildoers. Peace be on Israel.
