A song of ascents: Those who trust in ADONAI are like Mount Tziyon, which cannot be moved but remains forever.
Yerushalayim! Mountains all around it! Thus ADONAI is around his people henceforth and forever.
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.
Do good, ADONAI, to the good, to those upright in their hearts.
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!
