GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 Those who trust the LORD are like Mount Zion, which can never be shaken. It remains firm forever. 1 Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever.
2 [As] the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds his people now and forever. 2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds his people both now and forevermore.
3 A wicked ruler will not be allowed to govern the land set aside for righteous people. That is why righteous people do not use their power to do 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 Do good, O LORD, to those who are good, to those whose motives are decent. 4 Do good, O LORD, to those who are good, to those who are upright in heart.
5 But when people become crooked, the LORD will lead them away with troublemakers. Let there be peace in Israel! 5 But those who turn to crooked ways the LORD will banish with the evildoers. Peace be upon Israel.
