{A Song of degrees.}
They that confide in Jehovah are as mount Zion, which cannot be moved;
it abideth for ever.
2
Jerusalem!
mountains are round about her, and Jehovah is round about his people, from henceforth and for evermore.
3
For the sceptre of wickedness shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous;
lest the righteous put forth their hands unto iniquity.
4
Do good, O Jehovah, unto the good, and to them that are upright in their hearts.
5
But as for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways, Jehovah will lead them forth with the workers of iniquity.
Peace be upon Israel!
