1 A Song of Degrees.
They that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Sion: he that dwells in Jerusalem shall never be moved. 2 The mountains are round about her, and so the Lord is round about his people, from henceforth and even for ever. 3 For the Lord will not allow the rod of sinners to be upon the lot of the righteous; lest the righteous should stretch forth their hands to iniquity.
4 Do good, O Lord, to them that are good, and to them that are upright in heart. 5 But them that turn aside to crooked ways the Lord will lead away with the workers of iniquity: * Or, let peace be.but peace shall be upon Israel.
*124:5 Or, let peace be.
