New International Reader's Version (NIRV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion. They will always be secure. They will last forever. 1 Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever.
2 Like the mountains around Jerusalem, the LORD is all around his people both now and forever. 2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds his people both now and forevermore.
3 Evil people will not always rule the land the LORD gave to those who do right. If they did, those who do right might do what is 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. Do good to those whose hearts are honest. 4 Do good, O LORD, to those who are good, to those who are upright in heart.
5 But what about those who have taken paths that are crooked? The LORD will drive them out, along with those who do what is evil. May Israel enjoy peace. 5 But those who turn to crooked ways the LORD will banish with the evildoers. Peace be upon Israel.
