The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
1 Those who trust in God are like Zion Mountain: Nothing can move it, a rock-solid mountain you can always depend on. 1 Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever.
2 Mountains encircle Jerusalem, and God encircles his people - always has and always will. 2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds his people both now and forevermore.
3 The fist of the wicked will never violate What is due the righteous, provoking wrongful violence. 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 Be good to your good people, God, to those whose hearts are right! 4 Do good, O LORD, to those who are good, to those who are upright in heart.
5 God will round up the backsliders, corral them with the incorrigibles. Peace over Israel! 5 But those who turn to crooked ways the LORD will banish with the evildoers. Peace be upon Israel.
