4 Do good, O Lord, to those who are good, and to those who are upright in their hearts. 4 Do good, O LORD, to those who are good, to those who are upright in heart.
5 But those who turn aside to their own crooked ways the Lord will lead away with evildoers. Peace be upon Israel! 5 But those who turn to crooked ways the LORD will banish with the evildoers. Peace be upon Israel.
