A psalm written for people going up to the temple to worship
1 Those/We who trust in Yahweh are as secure/steadfast [SIM] as Zion Hill,
which cannot be shaken and can never be moved.
2 Like the hills that surround Jerusalem protect the city,
Yahweh protects us, his people,
and he will protect us forever.
3 Wicked people [MTY] should not be allowed to rule over the land where righteous people live.
If they did that, those righteous people might ◄be encouraged to imitate them and► do things that are wrong.
4 Yahweh, do good things to those who do good things to others
and to those who sincerely obey your commands [IDM].
5 But when you punish the wicked people who are not Israelis,
also punish those Israelis who turn away from walking on the good roads [MET] that you have shown them!
I wish that things will go well for people in Israel!
