Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 The people who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion: never shaken, lasting forever. 1 Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever.
2 Mountains surround Jerusalem. That's how the LORD surrounds his people from now until forever from now! 2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds his people both now and forevermore.
3 The wicked rod won't remain in the land given to the righteous so that they don't use their hands to do anything wrong. 3 The scepter of the wicked will not remain over the land allotted to the righteous, for then the righteous might use their hands to do evil.
4 LORD, do good to people who are good, to people whose hearts are right. 4 Do good, O LORD, to those who are good, to those who are upright in heart.
5 But as for those people who turn to their own twisted ways— may the LORD march them off with other evildoers! Peace be on Israel! 5 But those who turn to crooked ways the LORD will banish with the evildoers. Peace be upon Israel.
