New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 A song for the ascent to Jerusalem. Those who trust in the LORD are as secure as Mount Zion; they will not be defeated but will endure forever. 1 Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever.
2 Just as the mountains surround and protect Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds and protects his people, both now and forever. 2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds his people both now and forevermore.
3 The wicked will not rule the godly, for then the godly might be forced 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 O LORD, do good to those who are good, whose hearts are in tune with you. 4 Do good, O LORD, to those who are good, to those who are upright in heart.
5 But banish those who turn to crooked ways, O LORD. Take them away with those who do evil. And let Israel have quietness and peace. 5 But those who turn to crooked ways the LORD will banish with the evildoers. Peace be upon Israel.
