The Lord the Strength of His PeopleA Song of Ascents.
1Those who trust in the Lord
Are like Mount Zion,
Which cannot be moved, but abides forever.
2As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
So the Lord surrounds His people
From this time forth and forever.
3For ⚓the scepter of wickedness shall not rest
On the land allotted to the righteous,
Lest the righteous reach out their hands to iniquity.
4Do good, O Lord, to those who are good,
And to those who are upright in their hearts.
5As for such as turn aside to their ⚓crooked ways,
The Lord shall lead them away
With the workers of iniquity.
⚓Peace be upon Israel!
