God’s Surrounding Presence
A song of the stairway
1Those who trust in the Lord are as unshakable,
as unmovable as mighty Mount Zion!
2Just as the mountains surround Jerusalem,
so the Lord’s wraparound presence
surrounds his people, protecting them now and forever.
3The wicked will not always rule over the godly,
provoking them to do what is evil.
4God, let your goodness be given away to your good people,
to all your righteous ones!
5But those who turn away from truth—
them you will turn away from you, to follow their crooked ways.
You will give them just what they deserve.
May Israel experience peace and prosperity!
