Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 A song of ascents: Those who trust in ADONAI are like Mount Tziyon, which cannot be moved but remains forever. 1 Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever.
2 Yerushalayim! Mountains all around it! Thus ADONAI is around his people henceforth and forever. 2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds his people both now and forevermore.
3 For the scepter of wickedness will not rule the inheritance of the righteous, so that the righteous will not themselves turn their hands to evil. 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, ADONAI, to the good, to those upright in their hearts. 4 Do good, O LORD, to those who are good, to those who are upright in heart.
5 But as for those who turn aside to their own crooked ways, may ADONAI turn them away, along with those who do evil. Shalom on Isra'el! 5 But those who turn to crooked ways the LORD will banish with the evildoers. Peace be upon Israel.
