Yahweh Surrounds His People
A Song of Ascents.
Those who trust in Yahweh
Are as Mount Zion, which will not be shaken but will abide forever. 2
As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
So Yahweh surrounds His people
From now until forever. 3
For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest upon the land of the righteous,
So that the righteous would not send forth their hands in unrighteousness.
Do good, O Yahweh, to those who are good
And to those who are upright in their hearts. 5
But as for those who turn aside to their crooked ways,
Yahweh will lead them away with the workers of iniquity.
Peace be upon Israel.
