A song of degrees.
1 THey that do in Jehovah trust
shall as mount Sion be:
which cannot be remov’d, but shall
2 Like as the mountains round about
Jerusalem do stay:
so doth the Lord surround his folk,
from henceforth ev’n for aye.
3 For lewd men’s rod on just men’s lot
it shall not resting be:
lest just men should put forth their hand
4 To those Jehovah, that be good,
gladness to them impart:
as also unto them that are
upright within their heart.
5 But who turn to their crooked ways,
the Lord shall make them go
with workers of iniquity:
but peace be Isr’el to.
