Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which can never be shaken, never be moved. 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 The wicked will not always rule over the land of the righteous; if they did, the righteous themselves might do 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 Lord, do good to those who are good, to those who obey your commands. 4 Do good, O LORD, to those who are good, to those who are upright in heart.
5 But when you punish the wicked, punish also those who abandon your ways. Peace be with Israel! 5 But those who turn to crooked ways the LORD will banish with the evildoers. Peace be upon Israel.
